APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
See what APC (PHP Opcode Cache) is and how it could affect the PHP performance in your web hosting account.
APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that could boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with routinely changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site that doesn't change, for example an informational portal that shows the same content at all times. When the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load much faster. APC is really useful in particular for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is provided with every single cloud hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
