APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the abbreviation 'APC' signify? Why is the existence of APC within your account essential as far as your PHP-based Internet sites are involved? How can you activate this feature?
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites which display the very same content all of the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module can be really effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is available with every single cloud website hosting
package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could 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
You can take full advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans and activating the framework is performed with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you could use it in order to boost your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports 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 only a click to enable APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one can use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
