I hear that APC is better - is that true? I have also looked around for some installation help and cannot find anything - can someone point me in the direction of a good step by step guide?
You cannot really say that one is better than the other - it's comparing apples and oranges.
The Zend Optimizer is a product that will optimize your code before running it (simplifying, or whatever).
The APC is (as the name says) a product that will cache your code in RAM.
I highly recommend using the APC program as it _really_ gives performance a boost!
