APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, which could boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the site content that needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, for example an informational portal which shows identical content on a regular basis. Once the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user loads them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load a lot quicker. APC is very useful especially for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes.

What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run sites with various requirements from the very same account.
