DreamFactory Cassandra service requires following drivers to be installed.


The following instructions are for Ubuntu (16.04) distribution with PHP 7. For other distributions or OS see http://datastax.github.io/cpp-driver/topics/

Install Prerequisites

Assuming PHP 7 and pear is already installed.

   sudo apt-get install php7.0-dev libgmp-dev libpcre3-dev g++ make cmake libssl-dev openssl

Install the C/C++ driver

Download the driver and dependencies (use the right version for your OS)...

   wget http://downloads.datastax.com/cpp-driver/ubuntu/16.04/dependenices/libuv/v1.8.0/libuv_1.11.0-1_amd64.deb
   wget http://downloads.datastax.com/cpp-driver/ubuntu/16.04/dependenices/libuv/v1.8.0/libuv-dev_1.11.0-1_amd64.deb
   wget http://downloads.datastax.com/cpp-driver/ubuntu/16.04/cassandra/v2.4.2/cassandra-cpp-driver_2.4.2-1_amd64.deb
   wget http://downloads.datastax.com/cpp-driver/ubuntu/16.04/cassandra/v2.4.2/cassandra-cpp-driver-dev_2.4.2-1_amd64.deb

Install them...

   sudo dpkg -i libuv_1.11.0-1_amd64.deb
   sudo dpkg -i libuv-dev_1.11.0-1_amd64.deb
   sudo dpkg -i cassandra-cpp-driver_2.6.0-1_amd64.deb
   sudo dpkg -i cassandra-cpp-driver-dev_2.6.0-1_amd64.deb

Install PHP Cassandra extension (Choose One)


   sudo pecl install cassandra
   sudo sh -c 'echo "extension=cassandra.so" > /etc/php/7.0/mods-available/cassandra.ini'
   sudo phpenmod cassandra

Build from Source

   git clone https://github.com/datastax/php-driver.git
   cd php-driver/ext
   sudo make install
   echo "extension=cassandra.so" | sudo tee /etc/php/7.0/mods-available/cassandra.ini
   sudo phpenmod cassandra

To make sure your drivers are installed correctly, restart your web server or php7.0-fpm if you are using nginx and run the command php -m. Confirm that cassandra shows up on the list of installed extensions.

That's it! You have successfully installed all required drivers for DreamFactory Cassandra service.
