README

This plugin provides tools to help the use of the Alternative PHP Cache (APC).

It provides two features:

  • APC statistics page
  • Button that can be used to flush the APC system cache

The APC setting apc.stat defaults to on, forcing APC to stat (check) scripts on each request to determine if they have been modified. If a file has been modified, APC will recompile and cache the new version. On a production server where the script files rarely change, a significant performance boost can be achieved by disabled stats.

If the setting is off, APC will have to be forced to recheck files each time that modifications have been made. This plugin provides an easy way to flush the caches from the Elgg admin panel.

For detailed documentation on APC, see http://php.net/manual/en/book.apc.php
