  • [Forum] Memcache and co - amateur needs help

    Hi, I am totally unexperienced with that kind of stuff, so I hope I can get some help here.

    My main forum runs on a managed server (which gives me limited options but I can't administrate a server myself due to time reasons). So far I use APC (and FastCGI) and it works well.

    Since a few days my server offers a couple of extra PHP options. Some of them are Zend Optimizer (not available while using APC), Zend Guard Loader (disabled), memcache (disabled) and memcached (disabled).

    I wonder now what I should do. Keep APC and leave all options disabled? Would I benefit from combining any of the above? For example keep APC and configure memcache or memcached? By the way, what is the difference respectively, what is better, memcache or memcached?

    I am happy that I finally have several options, but I am totally unsure of what to use and how. What would be the best possible vB set up? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

    As your already using APC as you posted, there isnt really a reason to enable memcache, unless your using multiple servers to do a web load balance.

    I would have your management team install XCache versus APC though, but opinions vary on that too lol
