Installing PECL LUA on Centos for PHP

I'm kinda new to Linux, I'm mostly run websites, and it's rather easy to do everything... except install this PECL LUA plugin. Smilie

I start by running this command: pecl install lua-0.9.4

downloading lua-0.9.4.tgz ...

Warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings.                                   You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone                                  _set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting                                   this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected '                                  America/Chicago' for 'CDT/-5.0/DST' instead in PEAR/Validate.php on line 486

I found this: / bug.php?id=60641 (I can't post URLs, sorry for the bypass)

But it's partially nonsense to me. From what I understand I need to create a symbiotic link to reference the file, which isn't in the default location as they suggest. I have installed LUA, here's a list of relevant files:


I understand it isn't in it's default directory, what would be the symbiotic links I need to create so I can install PECL LUA?
