Hi,

What about using opcache caching?

it is the only solution officially supported by PHP developers. The benefits are increased performance and significantly lower memory usage.

However, opcode caching extensions (including OPcache, eAccelerator and APC) aren't compatible with servers configured to use some common types of high-security PHP handlers such as suPHP (the default on WHM / cPanel Linux servers) - I hope there is a way to overcome this problem add add opcache caching support to WHMCS.

WHM/cPanel does support LSAPI which does support Opcache. We use it.

Hi @Eric Caldwell

This is the answer I got from WHMCS support when I asked them about enabling opcache caching:

"WHMCS does not support opcache caching. The presence of this extension has been known to cause unexpected behavior with the WHMCS Software, and therefore we recommend disabling it on systems running WHMCS."

BTW, we switched to memcached from REDIS. Unless you run a multiserver environment, Memcached is more efficient and faster on single server operations and it comes supported out of the box with WHM/cPanel.
