APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous sites which offer the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is available with each cloud hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
