Should i upgrade my PHP to 5.4.14? Or is it going to break anything?
It won't break anything.
Why not go one higher
PHP 5.5 is not availbel on WHM/cPanel :/
Matt wasn't pointing out PHP 5.5. He was pointing out PHP 5.4.15 which is newer than the version you mentioned.
5.4.15 is what i installed
Hmm eAccelerator is not supported for PHP 5.4.15
Should i install XCache or APC?
My personal choice is Xcache
You can install that via WHM too? via EasyApache?
Easyapache installs the older 2.X release of Xcache. It's better to install 3.0.1 direct via command line
# wget http://xcache.lighttpd.net/pub/Releases/3.0.1/xcache-3.0.1.tar.gz
# tar -xzvf xcache-3.0.1.tar.gz
# cd xcache-3.0.1
# phpize --clean && phpize
# ./configure --enable-xcache
# make install
and then add extension=xcache.so and your xcache settings to php.ini and reload apache
You can setup a cron to update it?
APC, combined with Memcached, Libmemcached and Igbinay.
Can I ask if there is any benefit form running these three in tandem on a 2Gb/4Gb Burst VPS? I ask as I currently see no fragmentation at all just using APC
As MattW can confirm, we have ran that very setup + every other variation. Performance depends on allot of variables, there is no one (this is the best) solution, regardless of what data people will push. Try several and use what works best for your setup/build. And even then it may come down to what "feels" good to you, regardless of the data.
Install MemCache or MemCached???
Libmemcached, second line.
Thanks! Whats the difference though? the second one is better?
