I'd like to enable Xcache for my forum. Is this possible? (I have full server root access)
For a new VPS, you should be using php7 which comes with opcache (xcache upgrade/replacement) functionality as standard.
Enable it, and XF (or any other web app) will use it automatically - it's php that controls it, not the web app.
Does XF 1.5,7 support PHP 7?
The VPS will be running Ubunto 14.04 with Plesk 12. I'm assuming I can upgrade PHP to 7. What are the advantages of this?
PHP7 should be considerable faster (depending on your configuration) due to a much better caching mechanism
Plesk 12 comes with PHP 7.
Cool. I enabled PHP 7.09 as well as Opcache. I'm uploading my site now. Looking forward to it!
