Thread: Eaccellerator?

    Eaccellerator?

    I believe I understand what it does (cache php scripts in a compiled state to save them being compiled each time they are accessed) but What I need to know are what are the pros/cons of installing this.

    eaccelerator seems to have less support than XCache now, you may want to look into XCache.

    Pro: reduce load by more than half

    Con: Some scripts (drupal, gallery2) will segfault under high load

    Does it (XCache) increase ram usage, or cache on the disk?

    I'd recommend APC cache (http://www.php.net/apc).

    I'm using it on all my servers and works as expected without any trouble
    Just Freelancing on the Net

    just a quick question related to cachers, do you need to modify your scripts to use it or will it run right away?

    They will work straight away without any modifications to your scripts, at least eAccellerator and Xcache do.

    Ahh reading the cpanel forum it doesn't appear to work with suPHP anyway...

    No it wont, as suPHP runs individual PHP interpreters which are destroyed once the request is complete.
