My goal is to implement APC for opcode cache for a drupal 6 production site. I have so far tested APC with several php files with and without including other php files with include_once.
Also tried to tweak the apc.ini values for shm_size, apc.include_once_override and apc.stat. Restarted apache every time.
Resulting in apc.php not showing any changes in any values. (except of course the changed apc.ini values are shown as they should)
Every time i refresh the apc.php test page, the start time resets as the current time showing uptime 0 minutes.
apc.php -testpage shows:

I followed these steps to find if suexec settings would prevent caching: http://www.litespeedtech.com/support/forum/showthread.php?t=4189
[root@host /]# ps -ef|grep lsphp root 20402 17833 0 11:21 pts/0 00:00:00 grep lsphp [root@host /]# ps -waux root 17833 0.0 0.1 5004 1484 pts/0 S 10:39 0:00 bash
..indicates that there is no lsphp running on the host
also I read the following article and comments, concluding that in my case the problem is not the suexec as the user apache is the httpd process owner http://www.brandonturner.net/blog/2009/07/fastcgi_with_php_opcode_cache/
also suexec command is not recognized when logged and launced as root @ host
also i'm almost confident that there is no cPanel running on the host to check if a setting there would reset the running cache process at some interval
This leaves me with few clues where to head next. I tried to set (with chown and chgrp) apache as the owner of the apc.php file and some test php files resulting in 500 server error.
Is there a way to check if the file permissions prevent the apc stay running? I'm tremendously grateful for any suggestions or help.
