APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what the abbreviation ‘APC’ represents, exactly what APC is capable of doing PHP functionality-wise and ways to activate it for your account.
APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that could speed up a database-driven website several times. When a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the site content which should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a website which doesn't change, such as an informational portal which shows identical content at all times. As soon as the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor accesses them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load significantly quicker. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is provided with every single website hosting
solution that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
