VPS or Dedicated Hosting - Installing PHP APC
If you would like to improve the caching optimization of your PHP site, you may want to install Alternative PHP Cache (APC).
You will need both to use SSH access and have Sudo Access enabled. If you have not enabled sudo access please see Enabling Sudo Access to learn how to do so.
- Log in to the SSH terminal.
sudo pecl install apcand press enter.
- Once that is installed make a PHP information page in your public_html folder to see that it is enabled.
For more information about creating a phpinfo page please see the article PHP information page.
Any changes or adjustments that you would need to do to APC you would do in the php.ini file. To learn more about Alternative PHP Cache go to the PHP APC Manual.
