Using eAccelerator for PHP op-code caching

In the last years we have tested and ran multiple PHP op-code caching software for forums, php powered web sites and WordPress blogs. Performance wise the eAccelerator was our top-performer and we haven’t experienced problems with it.

eAccelerator is also a good choice for WordPress blog hosting and this op-code cache doesn’t cause problems with WP plugins – WP Super Cache, WP Cache and even when you run memcached caching.

Our standard settings for eAccelerator in 99% solutions is as follows:

zend_extension=”/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/eaccelerator.so”
eaccelerator.shm_size=”16″
eaccelerator.cache_dir=”/tmp/eaccelerator”
eaccelerator.enable=”1″
eaccelerator.optimizer=”1″
eaccelerator.check_mtime=”1″
eaccelerator.debug=”0″
eaccelerator.filter=””
eaccelerator.shm_max=”0″
eaccelerator.shm_ttl=”0″
eaccelerator.shm_prune_period=”0″
eaccelerator.shm_only=”0″
eaccelerator.compress=”1″
eaccelerator.compress_level=”9″
