Please help me to understand where is difference between APC and APCu lies. While inspecting CentOS web-server (set up not by me) found that it has APCu 4.0.2 installed and phpinfo(); reports that APC Emulated. It was bit confusing, anyway tried to use settings for normal APC in php.ini

apc.shm_size = 768M                       
apc.cache_by_default = 0                  
apc.stat = 0 

Then checked apc.php status page and it revealed that only apc.shm_size changed, but no cache entries for selected domains. So how can i adapt APCu to cache selected domains as APC did ?

@Tallboy Seems apc support has been dropped in php 5.5. Now APC bundled in php 5.5 core. –  Demontager May 1 at 9:22
