Playing around with my 1.0 installation on a debian etch machine, I installed the apc bytecache. Almost instantly, my pages were loading at least 2 times faster. I did not do proper benchmarks, just estimating, switching back off, it’s loading slower, switching back on, it’s faster.
I am new to PHP and would not be the right person to ask “how to I install apc”. However
* pecl install apc
* and some subsequent automatic make/compile steps
did it for me.
Also, I found benchmarks for Drupal on the net, where APC consistently did a 500% speedup over pure PHP.
