Package: php5-apcu
Version: 5.4.39

What I did:
1) I ran:
    apt-get install php5-apcu
2) I copied the file apcu.so that was installed in a random directory to 
the correct directory for PHP extensions
3) I added this to php.ini:
4) I restarted apache, and tested by requesting from a browser a PHP 
script that calls phpinfo()
5) I ran "php -m"

Expected behavior:
apcu should work

4 - phpinfo() (called via web) would show nothing about apcu
5 - "php -m" from the CLI showed an error message, more or less like
   "apcu: cannot initialize module" (or "extension", don't remember exactly)

So I uninstalled it (apt-get remove), and I installed it with pecl:
   pecl install channel://pecl.php.net/apcu-4.0.7
I repeated steps 2-5 and this time it worked like a charm.

So: apcu installed from pecl works fine. The debian package, OTOH, is 

PS. I don't really know which version it was. I just ran
   apt-get install php5-apcu
so the actual version is whatever is installed by default.

Here's my version of Debian:
Distributor ID:	Debian
Description:	Debian GNU/Linux 7.8 (wheezy)
Release:	7.8
Codename:	wheezy
