W3 Total Cache
Is there any reason to run W3 Cache alongside APC? (2 posts)

    We're relying primarily on APC for our site caching at jmonkeyengine.org, which is a forum-centric BuddyPress site.

    We were running W3 Total Cache for quite some time, but somewhere along the line after we'd started using APC, we didn't see the need for W3 any longer. So I ask: If we've successfully set up APC, are there still some good reasons why we should keep W3 active? (Of course making sure it recognizes that we're using APC for caching).

    (Minification did not work out for us; there were some newline bugs, so that particular 'extra' is out of the picture).

    W3TC is a framework to apply caching to various levels of the application. APC is designed first and foremost to significantly speed up PHP itself. And it provides some additional memory-based caching for tools that want to use it as well.
