Installing and configuring ZMQ:

The following exemples is based on Debian Linux but it should work in other OS.

Installing 0MQ:
Go to and choose a package according your OS, in my case I've choosed
POSIX tarball Stable Release 4.0.4.

~$ tar -xvf zeromq-4.0.4.tar
~$ cd zeromq-4.0.4
~$ ./configure
~$ make
~$ sudo make install

Ok, we just have installed ZMQ now need install zmq php binding...
Make sure you having php-dev and php pear installed. If no:

~$ sudo apt-get install php5-dev php-pear
~$ sudo pecl install zmq-beta

Ok, we have now ZMQ and php binding (ext-php) installed but we should add "" (Or extension=php_zmq.dll on windows) to php.ini:
In my case:

~$ sudo nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

**NOTE:** If PHP version is 5.4.x you will need to add a zmq.ini file in /etc/php5/conf.d and put "":

~$ sudo nano /etc/php5/conf.d/20-zmq.ini

Reloadind HTTP server (in my case apache):

~$ sudo service apache2 reload
