Ubuntu – Installing APC. Use pecl or apt-get

12.04PHPserver

I have seen guides that use apt-get install php-apc and guides that use pecl install apc.

Is one method better then the other? Or is just two different methods of installing the same thing? What is the difference?

From what I read it seems that using pecl install will get a later version, is that right?

Using Ubuntu 12.04-64bit if it matters. Thanks.

It depends on if you want to manage upgrades with apt-get or pecl. Either way there's no real benefit to one vs the other.
