WinCache Support


Well-known member
Hi guys,
This is for the people who are using WinCache for PHP on the Windows Platform. For this to work, you need to be using at least WinCache 1.1. I have, however, tested and built against WinCache 1.2 dev.

If you plan to install WinCache 1.1, please ensure you meet its prerequisites, the most important that PHP must be running under FastCGI.

This build is currently untested on Apache for Windows, however, it does work on IIS 6.0 +. I expect it to be somewhat successful with Apache for Windows.

The files I am including will replace 1 file in the XenForo Zend Framework folder, and will add 1 file.

/ Library​
/ Zend​
/ Cache​
/ Backend​
To activate the caching mechanis, please add the following to your config.php folder, found in /library/:
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions'] = array(
 'caching' => true,
 'automatic_serialization' => true,
 'lifetime' => 10800,
 'cache_id_prefix' => 'XenForo'
$config['cache']['backend'] = 'WinCache';

Thanks for this :)

Is it possible to integrate Wincache support in to the next version of XenForo, as it is by far the best Windows caching system at the moment (IMO ;))
