Installation through apt on Debian/Ubuntu is the urrently the most simple way to get started.

Install the Tideways packages:

echo 'deb https://packages.tideways.com/apt-packages debian main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tideways.list
wget -qO - https://packages.tideways.com/key.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tideways-daemon tideways-php tideways-cli

The post install hook for the tideways-php package detects your PHP installation and installs the correct version of the Tideways.

Don't forget to restart the webserver (apache2 with mod php) or php-fpm service to make the extension is loaded.

YUM/DNF

Preferred installation is through Yum or DNF.

echo "[tideways]
name = Tideways
baseurl = https://packages.tideways.com/yum-packages-main" > /etc/yum.repos.d/tideways.repo
rpm --import https://packages.tideways.com/key.gpg https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/tideways/packages/EEB5E8F4.gpg
yum makecache --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=tideways
yum install tideways-php tideways-cli tideways-daemon
Don't forget to restart the webserver (apache2 with mod php) or php-fpm service to make the extension is loaded.

We provide tarballs with the PHP extension, daemon, CLI and proxy binaries for a wider variety of systems.

There is currently no Alpine based build for the tideways-daemon, but using slim Debian images you can get a small image as described in our documentation
