APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Learn what the acronym ‘APC’ stands for, what exactly APC can do PHP overall performance-wise and how to enable it for your account.
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites that show the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is provided with each and every cloud hosting
solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several releases of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
plans since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you wish to use this module, you can activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will permit you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal™
-based Internet site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
