APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the abbreviation 'APC' imply? Just why is the presence of APC inside your account important as far as your PHP-based sites are concerned? How to enable this option?
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the very same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared hosting solution that you choose when you register. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will speed up your sites since it'll start caching their program code. In case you want to run sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
