Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just installed APC with PHP Handler FastCGI. But it seems the Cache never working.

if(($t=apc_fetch('key_4321'))===FALSE){
    $t=time();
    apc_add('key_4321', $t, 24*60*60);
}

echo $t;

Almost each time I run it I got a different timestamp. Only a few times it remains the same results. What's the possible reason?

I'm using PHP Version 5.3.21 and Server API is CGI/FastCGI.

Server Software Apache/2.2.23 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.23 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 mod_fcgid/2.3.6

Below is my APC setting.

FastCGI and the APC data cache don't play well together. FastCGI uses multiple processes and APC doesn't synchronize its data cache across processes. See this answer to APC: apc_fetch returns false often, but sometimes success.
