What is The XCache – how to install Xcache from source code

When you have the optimum resource controlling tendency and enough power to program the server control, it all is sieved through the propensity of the language efficiency to have shown its effect in the implementation in its results. So what better a situation could be if its fineness could be improved.

Introduction Of XCache:

Php being a viable programming and server language remains in the head for maximum hosters, especially if you are a group of website developers and protectors, or an individual. Its efficiency could be increased by another interesting tool for use, XCache. An XCache however might seem to be alien but its working is next to any marvel invented in the timeline of computers. Being an open source Op Code cacher, xcache, it totally contributes in the performance of PHP working on servers.How has it gained such a stature of being called a saviour in its field? Well performance optimization comes when it tries to inhibit any delay in compiling scripts in PHP. PHP scripts tend to take undue amount of time, so if in any manner that slack could be cut, it would prove to be an advantage as time is money, you know!

What exactly happens is cutting short of compilation of PHP scripts time taken by having it cached the compiled state of php script in the SHM that is nothing but a kind of RAM and thus having straightly taken it into use from the RAM directly. I If that is less, then it increases the page generation time rate by 5 times as optimisation of many other facets of PHP scripts also is rendered. This reduces the server load.

Some more in the introductory sense of XCache, comes in an unignorable and prerogative manner of having talked about the sources helping the generation of it. There comes difficulties always in the way of a coder or a hoster, what remains to be distinguishing is the problem solving attitude and acumen. Sources are those which would help you generate a long routed strategy to run and revive XCache. Some in it’s field are PHPA (PHP accelerator), although it came long before many other ones which come latter in the list. Some other ones but less important ones are, truck-memcache. In times of crashing and hanging of any of these codes, one could heavily suspired to be relying on another one called APC. Although it offers itself in the most simple sense, Its beauty also remains unmatched with any other one on the list.

Why would somebody be offering a simple way of source coding? Because stability could only be rendered in its most reliable form when something is understandable and something becomes understandable once it is claimed to be simple enough. But that’s not all, you still need XCache to be written after that. Why? Because In some other projects some things might seem to catch up unending and thus make it a hectic and unsolvable affair (ea/apc).

SO if one writer has to be going with APC , that path would have to be caught up by the XCache sometime atleast, and when it comes, it would have to be realisation.

Steps to Install XCache:

SO the installation manual goes something like this:

1. Check the Pre-requisites:

You need to see the XCache source files first, and check for the latest version of php. i.e currently 6.x series.


2. You need to select common build tools as : c compiler, make, libtool

3. Building upon code:

Code building if done using a path like /opt/php/bin/phpize , which has not been the first one found in $PATH, you should remember to configure always with-php-config=/opt/php/bin/php-config

4. Now final installation is only needed to be done.

Installation could be done using root as:

~/src/xcache-build $ su
~/src/xcache-build # make install
Last but not the least modification of php.ini has to be done only!
And you are all ready with you XCache installed! Enjoy!
