APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Discover what the acronym ‘APC’ represents, just what exactly APC is capable of PHP functionality-wise and the 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 applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're many websites that feature the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for such websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is provided with every single cloud web hosting
package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer several releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our advanced cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with 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 Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
plans as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge 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 just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run sites with various requirements from the exact same account.
