Speed up your website loading time by using PHP APC [Part-5]
In some cases if you are running WordPress OR some other database extensive application on micro instances, you will experience slow page loading on various occasions.
There is a nice solution to that, install PHP APC to cache most the PHP code for fast loading.
I assume that you are already on the server console through SSH:
1st let’s install few needed dependencies including php pear:
yum install php-pear httpd-devel php-devel
Now time to install APC by pecl command:
pecl install apc
Add a line to apc.ini to load the module:
echo "extension=apc.so" > /etc/php.d/apc.ini
Restart the httpd server:
service httpd restart
You will notice quite a difference now. The execution time per page will now reduce dramatically. I have tested it on a micro instance for a WordPress site, and i can confirm that the site loads fast now.
