I wrote a post recently asking about whether it was possible to cache PHP and through that question was introduced to the concept of PHP accelerators, specifically APC. Well, doing lots of research online, I feel like a newbie once again, as all of the “behind the PHP curtain” lingo sounds like Ancient Greek. So…I think that it’s time to buy a book on optimizing my PHP so that I can eventually ask some meaningful questions.
My question, then is whether anyone has any recommendations. Through another thread, the book Advanced PHP programming by Schlossnagle was mentioned. But, before I go off and buy it, I’d love to what your opinion is on the matter.
