  • PHP Extension

    Greetings,

    I would like to use the Alternative PHP Cache:

    http://pecl.php.net/apc

    Is it already installed? If not, do you think MyHosting would install it for me? If not, is it possible to load it at run-time?

    I have Linux hosting.

    Thanks,
    Shane.

    Re: PHP Extension

    Hello Shane,

    I consulted with our Linux SysAdmins and they indicate that we do not support it. It is not secure in a shared hosting environment, because any user would be able to manipulate the cache of any other user.

    As an alternative we recommend using sessions (for per-user settings) or application variables stored in your MySQL db. These alternatives should be more secure in a shared hosting environment.

    Hope this helps!

      Just to make sure the obvious is covered here....

      You could create a directory called "remove" in your root directory and put an index.html file inside of that and you'd have /remove/ working no problem.
