In WordPress Admin Area
Installed the “Batcache Manager” and “APC Object Cache” plugins using the Plugins ==> Add New option in the WordPress Admin Panel and didn’t activate
created phpinfo.php in the web root of my webserver and called it via a browser
Contents of phpinfo.php
<?php # call phpinfo phpinfo(); ?>
and checked for apc support. and got nadda.
Installed the APC module using the
pecl search apc and
pecl install apc-X.X.X with instructions from http://devzone.zend.com/1812/using-apc-with-php/
I chose the defaults while I was compiling.
add extension=apc.so to the php.ini and restart the webserver
Check the output of phpinfo.php again and now had apc.
discovered you don’t “activate” the apc plugin but you have to copy the wp-content/plugins/apc/object-cache.php file to wp-content/ to get it working
copied wp-content/plugins/batcache/advanced-cache.php wp-content/ to activate batcache and checked to make sure define(‘WP_CACHE’, true); is in wp-config.php
To check to see if it’s working I copied lib/php/apc.php from my php install to a password protected folder for this site so I can see the cached objects. because I put it in the password proctected directory I disabled apc.php’s internal password mechanism by setting “defaults(‘USE_AUTHENTICATION’,0);”
