APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What does the abbreviation 'APC' imply? Just why is the presence of APC inside your account important as far as your PHP-based Internet sites are concerned? How can you enable this option?
APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which needs to be displayed 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 involve reading and writing on the server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're various sites that feature the very same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to employ APC for your web apps with all of the shared website hosting
packages that we provide because it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Enabling it will take just a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will start caching the program code of your applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations determined by the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each Internet site can use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specified Internet sites. This is done by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can take advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server
packages and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you'll be able to use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. In this way, one website could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, whereas another one can use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
