Today we will show you how to improve the performance of your website with APC and memcached.
APC stands for Alternative PHP Cache and it is an open source solution if you like to speed-up your website. APC caches the output of compiled PHP code and stores the result in shared memory.
Memcached on the other hand, stores arbitrary data such as strings and objects that come up as a result from API, database calls etc. It is open source as well and it is intended for improving the performance of your website.
The installation of APC and memcahed is very simple and usually takes 10-15 minutes to be completed. This guide will show you how to do that on a Linux VPS.
