APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What does the abbreviation 'APC' signify? Just why is the existence of APC within your account essential as far as your PHP-based websites are involved? How can you enable this feature?
APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous websites which offer the very same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you pick when you register. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your sites because it will begin caching their code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or employ different 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. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
