APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the abbreviation 'APC' mean? Just why is the existence of APC within your account essential as far as your PHP-based websites are concerned? How can you activate this option?
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses a webpage, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites that display the very same content all of the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared hosting
solution that you select when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your sites because it'll begin caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are created, so you'll be able to employ it regardless of the package you pick. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to use different versions of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this specific website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and use different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
