APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

…ckages 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 performance tuning and MySQL cache. If your clients are adamant in their requests to use APC cache, you may wish to move them to a different server which can… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 817.27
