    For Page cache, is better to use Disk (enhanced) or an opcode cache like APC?

    And the same question about the other cache type.

    Thanks

    Typically disk enhanced is optimal, particularly on shared hosting accounts. Recommended settings are indicated in the drop down selections for caching method on the general settings tab.

    Yes, I know it, but I would like to know deeper how it functions Disk (enhanced) method vs APC for file cache.

    I have a cloud vps with a tool that measures the I/O disk access, and I've seen that using APC as cache method the I/O is higher than using Disk. (my APC uses a disk file to store cache, not ram).

    well in that case, disk enhanced will be better.

    Disk enhanced is often faster because the memory performance of the kernel after reading files is faster than PHP.
