w3 total cache plugin: Website breaks while APC Enabled (5 posts)

    I have a website developed in wordpress 3. URL is http://www.boldreports.com. I have done extensive research on caching for wordpress and have tested 3-4 plugins on this site. I have used hyer cache with db cache reloaded plugin, and the performance increase was decent. Before trying this i hve tested w3total cache as well. Botht the plugins was setup using default settings. i have not seen noticeable difference using w3tc. May be i have not done the right configuration.
    After that i have studied about w3tc in detail and figured out i should use APC for caching. I have installed APC and enabled it. Kindly note that I have virtual Dedicated Server for this site and this is the only site on the server.

    After enabling APC cache in apc.ini file, i have opened my website and to my surprise site was not opening in any browser. Even wp-admin pages were not opening. More strange thing is that some wp-admin pages are getting opened and some are not opening. I have disabled all caching plugins including w3tc. but the issue was still there. i have restarted the server but no solution.

    Then I have disabled the APC from apc.ini file and everything starts working well.
    I do not know why this has happened. I have latest version of APC (installed today) and php 5.2.14.

    One more strange thin i have noticed is i can still see APC enabled (means not grayed out)in the drop-down list of w3tc caching plugin.

    Can i use it here even APC is disabled from apc.ini

    Kindly help me to solve this as i have to begun marketing and SEO of this site.

    Thanks and Regards.

    Check if you have Zend optimizer enabled in php. apc is not compatible with it.

  4. The problems your having with APC are definitely related to a conflict with zend. open your php.ini and comment out

    zend_extension ="path/to/extension_dir/zend_optimizer.so"

    by adding a ; in front of the line then re enable apc and restart apache and you should be fine.
