APC Object Cache Backend
How install Memcached Object AND APC Object Cache Backend? (2 posts)

    I would like to install plugins Memcached Object Cache and APC Object Cache Backend on my WordPress.

    Each of these plugins should put their content in wp-content.

    The problem is that these two files have the same name, object-cache.php. So on my wordpress, I can only install one

    I wish use both. Do you have a solution ?

    If you use two caches for the same object then you're actually slowing things down. That's because the cached object would pass through two caches, and both of them add a small amount of latency.

    What you could do to combine them is to use memcache as an object cache and APC as a bytecode cache. This means you would use the plugin and object-cache.php for memcache and integrate APC with PHP.

    But, if you only have a single server, then APC is often the better option for the object cache. You can use it for both objects and bytecode. I've included link to benchmarks showing this in a different post: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-w3-total-cache-memcached-database-caching-on-a-vps-ok?replies=5#post-3224127
