eAccelerator is a further development from mmcache PHP Accelerator & Encoder.
eAccelerator increases performance of PHP scripts by caching them in compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated.
This version of the eAccelerator has been successfully tested on PHP 4.1.0-4.3.3 under Redhat Linux 7.0, 7.3, 8.0, 9.0, Fedora Core 1,2,3 and Windows with Apache 1.3 and 2.0.
What's New in This Release:
This version brings full php 5.1 support, which has as side-effect that eAccelerator won't work anymore with php 4 on windows, but on other platforms this isn't a problem.
The shared memory functions, session handler and content cache are disabled by default now. They are only used by a small amount of users and they could allow local users to fill up the memory, if they aren't secured properly.
The old web control panel and the disassembler have been removed from the code. They have been replaced with a set of php functions that allow the same functionality to be implemented in a PHP script. The control.php and the dasm.php files are such scripts. More information about this can be found in the README.
Memory footprint should be reduced because redundant information in the cached scripts is no longer stored. Keeping this information cached can be done with --with-eaccelerator-doc-comment-inclusion
File hashing in the cache directory has been added to improve performance with a large amount of cache files.
