Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a website as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites that display the same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be extremely helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is provided with every single cloud web hosting
plan that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are made, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ several versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this particular website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
