I read about APC, and noticed that it's is confusing if it is still supported on PHP 5.6+ versions. Some peope say that PHP since version 5.5+ has the extension opcache, which is not the same thing as APC.
They say that exists the APC and APCu, which I though that was the newer version of APC. Is that right ?
I'm using ubuntu 14.04 and instaled PHP APC using
apt-get install php-apc which instaled some sort of emulated APC, that was what phpinfo() shown.
I want to use a cache capability on my application to store a big array of strings.
Will the PHP APC still a supported and default way to chache data on PHP newer versions ?
