Increase PHP pages serving speed
Posted by Esvon Support on 14 June 2007 08:25 PM
Sooner or later your website reaches the point when you start thinking about performance. We have already shared our knowledge in this area obtained from wise books, public sources and from our previous experience at http://www.esvon.com/pg/services/performance/ but we can try to simplify this topic.
The simplest way to make your PHP pages fly is compiler cache installation. Zend offers commercial solution "Zend Platform" for this
purpose, but free open source alternative is available as well - eAccelerator ( http://www.eaccelerator.net/ ).
eAccelerator can help PHP to load files much faster, so if you were thinking about performance improvement possibilities recently, you may want to consider eAccelerator install.
Tip: Zend Optimizer must be installed after eAccelerator in php.ini so it's loaded after eAccelerator ( http://eaccelerator.net/wiki/TroubleShooting ).
Ilia Alshanetsky ( www.ilia.ws ) recently did a good talk on php performance (at php tek) that you might be interested in if you have not already seen it. You can download the pdf of it at http://ilia.ws/files/phptek2007_performance.pdf (be sure to check page 4 where compiler cache usage benefits are shown in digits).
to optimal website performance
