I'm curious about running the pcntl php extension (http://php.net/manual/en/book.pcntl.php) on my webfaction shared hosting account. basically what I want to do is create a task queue daemon with Kohana 3 using a module like https://github.com/jonnyjon/Task-Queue in order to do routine utility tasks like send registration emails and clear caches.

after experimenting a bit it looks like pcntl is not installed on the shared hosting setup, which makes sense. based on other forum posts I've read around here I figure I could maybe compile my own LAMP environment with pcntl support in my home dir but I'm curious whether there is an easier way. has anyone else ever used this extension on a webfaction shared server or is it just not possible? if it's disallowed altogether that would be understandable. just wondering...

oops I just noticed this question: http://community.webfaction.com/questions/566/php-daemon

that's probably the answer to my question also.
