According to a Linux Adminstrator over at Hostgator:
With PHP 5.3 having APC installed is not needed as PHP 5.3 already has improvements that APC does resolve in it.
Is that statement actually accurate? Does installing APC (Alternative PHP Cache) give any performance improvements with PHP 5.3?
I questioned this statement and a different admin defended it by:
the official word we have from our upper tier administrators is to avoid APC as PHP 5.3+ has improved from previous versions such that APC can potentially become redundant or even conflicting
Am I being tossed around here or is this statement valid? This issue was discussed with Hostgator in regards to installing APC on their Level 7 VPS.
