APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the acronym 'APC' mean? Just why is the presence of APC within your account important as far as your PHP-based websites are involved? How can you turn on this feature?
APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that could boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a site which does not change, for instance an informational portal that shows the same content on a regular basis. As soon as the pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a website visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load much quicker. APC is really effective in particular for scripts with massive source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal™
-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work 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'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements from the very same account.
