I have installed APC on Apache, shared environment (Media Temple gs) with databaste running in isolated container. I followed the protocal with regards to php.ini, local.xml and made some APC config. adjustments. I think that I see a slight improvement in the handling of cache, but the front end page upload time is slower and there is no change in “add to cart” time.
I am looking at this blog:http://www.magentocommerce.com/blog/understanding-magento-scalability-and-performance-1/
with this local.xml edit:
Any thoughts or experience with this snippet as an alternative to ‘Alphanumeric? Does anyone understand what the implicatons are?
“Cache Management” no longer saves the checked items (check marks) when enabling the Magento cache. (And yes, var/cache stays empty) Is this normal? I am asking myself if I have lost the Magento cache mechanisms and traded one for the other. The site was faster without APC than with. Can anyone think of anything that had tripped them up after APC installation? I have read every forum/wiki/blog/post/thread about speeding up Magento and APC that I can find. What have I done bass-akwards??
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
