I have APC installed on my server along with APC Object Cache Backend for WP. When I disable the object-cache.php by moving it out of my wp-content directory, I am able to successfully use set_transient() in my php code / plugins. i.e. rows are successfully written to my wp-options table. I need to be able to have persistent cache objects that won't expire for a month or longer, and WP's set_transient works perfectly for me.
Is there a way to get this working with APC and the object-cache backend?
