    Is anyone using any of the PHP accelerators with recent versions of PHP eg;
    PHP Accelorater is an open source php cacheing program. (Just like ZEND ACCELERATOR but free.) Zend Costs over a $1000.00 . Check it out here:

    But it is stated that it won't work with sites using the zend optimizer. How do we determine if customers are using the zend otimizer?

    Is anyone using Turck MMCache with recent versions of PHP?

    I haven't seem much recent development in either of these accelerators and wonder what is going on.

    php-accelerator isn't in active development anymore (they have the commercial ioncube one now). However, e-Accelerator is a fork of turck-mmcache started when the author went to work for zend. It's fixed a lot of the outstanding bugs as well as improved compatability with php 5. It's also hosted on sourceforge so you can easily get the latest cvs version if you have problems, the link is:


    I've been using it on one of our semi-dedicated servers (10 sites per server) with some rather heavy traffic clients on there (big bespoke php e-commerce and cms systems) and have seen 0 problems.

    As always though, YMMV.
