Caching is used to improve performance in many computer applications and operations. It can also be used to help with performance in PrestaShop. Caching speeds up operations by storing data in the server memory to reduce task queries on the database. The different caching options that can be used are found in PrestaShop in the Advanced Parameters section under Performance. The following article explains the options for using Caching in the PrestaShop 1.5 Administrator.
|Memcached||Based on a distributed caching system that can be used with multiple servers. The PHP Configuration of your server must
have the Memcached PECL extension. If you select the Memcached solution, click on ADD SERVER and you will see the following:
|APC||Stands for Alternative PHP Cache - requires one server and requires the APC PECL extension. When you select this option you will see the following:
Note the warning regarding the infrastructure for the front-end server. Contact Technical Support if you have any questions in regards to this issue.
|Xcache||This is a new system, but requires Lighttpd server and will not work on Apache server. For more information go to http://xcache.lighttpd.net|
|File System||File system caching simply saves the files on your server|
If you find yourself requiring to take measures to improve performance for your PrestaShop installation, make sure to check your caching options. Caching reduces the workload that the PrestaShop application must do by saving on required database queries. The information is saved ahead of time so that it simply has to retrieve it from the "cache" where the values are saved. Select this option after reviewing your server performance. If you are unable to get the required information about your server optimization or are unfamiliar with this process, contact the support team that maintains your hosting service.
