    No matter what i do, I cant get the message that is appended to my pages when they load to reflect apc usage.

    It keeps on saying disk and disk enhanced.

    On all my screens on the wordpress backend it says I have apc enabled.

    ???

    Oh and two more things.

    Here's what it says

    Minified using disk: basic
    Page Caching using disk: basic
    Database Caching 70/74 queries in 4.581 seconds using disk: basic
    Object Caching 3172/3194 objects using disk: basic

    Content Delivery Network via Amazon Web Services: CloudFront: cdn.xxxx.com

    Like I said, it is using apc for everything.

    I am assuming it should look like Yoast.com?

    Minified using apc
    Page Caching using apc
    Database Caching using apc
    Object Caching 1184/1373 objects using apc
    Content Delivery Network via cdn.yoast.com

    ?????

    First, from my knowledge of the plugin, I don't thing Page Cache and Minified offer better performance using APC. According to all I have read, this requires PHP to be loaded for every page request which is much slower than your web server loading static files directly from the disk.

    As for seeing if APC is caching, have you tried checking it with apc.php? If not, do a search for it and put it in your base directory. This will tell you if APC is being used and exactly how much memory is being used by it.

    As for disk caching, if you really wanted to get crazy, you could mount the directory used by W3TC for caching no a tmpfs or a ram disk. It's a bit complicated as you would have to make sure that the contents are loaded and saved during server start/shutdown.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I can say that this plugin works but is a tremendous and inconsistent pain in the ass.

    I would advise most people to use WP-Super Cache and generate cache plugin.

    That one seems to just work better...

    Plus the author pays attention to feedback and answers questions...
