Server Setup Tips WHM Cpanel to drop Memory Usage

Hey Guys

I have some tips i would like to share with you guys

1) eAccelerator – object-cache.php – DSO

WHM log in and go to EasyApache (Apache Update) and then pick

EAccelerator for PHP

Suhosin for PHP

Zend Optimizer/Guard Loader for PHP

Go trough the set up and then you need to mod some of the stuff :slight_smile:

Now Edit eAccelerator


pico /usr/lib/php.ini

Look for eaccelerator.shm_size=”256”

Look for eaccelerator.cache_dir = “/tmp/eaccelerator” change it to /backupdrive/eaccelerator

Now we need to make the dir

mkdir /backupdrive/eaccelerator

chmod 0777 /backupdrive/eaccelerator

rm -rf /tmp/eaccelerator

Now we need to make sure eaccelerator is working :slight_smile:


php -v (It now should show you eaccelerator )

Also have a look inside the /backupdrive/eaccelerator you should also see a hole bunch of files in there

Now WordPress

Add this TPC! Memory Usage for WordPress works like a charm :slight_smile: have a look at your Memory Usage

Now WordPress

eAccelerator for WordPress 0.6 download it and then upload object-cache.php to wp-content

Now log in to WordPress and have a look at your Memory Usage it should be almost half.

I hope my post helps some server admin out there that has load problems on there servers

Ps Load on server was always at 10 now with this fix it is down to 2 – 5
