How to Configure APC Cache on Virtual Servers with PHP running under FCGId

…ff, your settings/configuration files will remain cached, and this will cause you a lot of frustration. W3 Total Cache in particular is difficult to get configured properly with apc.stat=0 because the config settings and files are dependent upon database and php, which will be cached as files or opcode. After you have sorted out your opcode settings, you may switch apc.stat=0 and restart the web server to turn off polling for better performance…. 3, 0, 0, 0 and 18394.93

WordPress with W3 Total Cache on Nginx with APC (Virtualmin)

Virtualmin now includes support for Nginx web server. I deploy many WordPress sites with W3 Total Cache and APC Alternative PHP Cache, so I was very interested to see how Nginx performance compares to Apache for WordPress, and whether APC and W3TC would play nice with Nginx. I prefer to install WordPress in public_html/wordpress for ease of development, compatibility with other scripts, etc. Accordingly, the suggested configuration is for WordPr… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 9910.96

Take Time to Get a Realistic Assessment of MySQL Performance If you have a PHP opcode and database caching strategy (such as APC) implemented on your web server and for your PHP script packages, you will be able to lower maxconnections,… 3, 0, 0, 0 and 4916.56

APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

…s for a small number of personal clients, so I adjust the APC settings for each individual account, depending on the number and type of PHP script packages running on the account. These accounts are all administered by myself, not by the clients. I do not think APC is the correct cache for most shared web hosting servers, given the number of virtual hosts. You will probably have better results if you remove APC and concentrate on Apache performan… 11, 1, 1, 0 and 3320.94

Varnish VCL and Config for WordPress with W3 Total Cache

I have been working on a Varnish front-end for Apache, to be used with WordPress sites. I described the architecture in Load Balancing Virtualmin WordPress Hosting Server with Varnish on AWS. I now have a configuration that seems to work for all WordPress features, including logged-out commenting. This configuration also works well with W3 Total Cache. This configuration is for Varnish on a separate server, but should also work on a single serve… 0, 0, 3, 0 and 1958.84

Auto Mailer Form with Validation and reCAPTCHA

I was recently searching for a form template that uses Twitter’s Bootstrap framework. PFBC, the PHP Form Builder Class, was recently refactored with Bootstrap, and it also supports validation and reCAPTCHA. PFBC does not include a form handler, but it does take the difficult and redundant work out of creating self-validating forms. Adding an auto-mailer to PFBC is very simple, however. You just need a simple PHP if/else and all is well. If… 11, 0, 0, 0 and 1193.46
