Accelerate your PHP code


Recommended Posts

We applied this to 4 of our servers, and have really noticed a huge php performance gain, and the server resources are at least 25% lower than they were.


This can also be installed (and is supported by cPanel) from EasyApache3 from within cPanel/WHM interface.


eAccelerator description:

"eAccelerator is a free open-source PHP accelerator, optimizer, and dynamic content cache. It increases the performance of PHP scripts by caching them in their compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated. It also optimizes scripts to speed up their execution. eAccelerator typically reduces server load and increases the speed of your PHP code by 1-10 times." (Font: eAccelerator )


eAccelerator auto installer should work perfectly on any cPanel server, there are lots of sanity checks built in to prevent any possible issue or destruction.


Download and run eAccelerator atoinstaller:

# wget http://tutorials.medialayer.com/cPanel/eaccelerator.sh

# chmod 700 eaccelerator.sh

# ./eaccelerator.sh


Note: The php.ini gets backed up before it is modified, you can get it back..

php -v wouldn't show anything different because your php version isn't changing...

examine your php.ini and you should see that it now includes libraries to the accelerator.

You can also check http://forums.cpanel.net for more complete details on the accelerator being that cpanel includes it from within the easyapache3 (ea3) interface.
