APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what the abbreviation ‘APC’ means, just what APC is capable of PHP functionality-wise and ways to activate it for your account.
APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're various sites that present the same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is provided with each hosting
package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide several releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific 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 available with all semi-dedicated server
packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you wish to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal™
-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements in the same account.
