Caching with eAccelerator
A host uses eAccelerator 0.9.6.1 which is enabled:
eAccelerator support enabled Version 0.9.6.1 Caching Enabled true Optimizer Enabled true Check mtime Enabled true Memory Size 16,777,176 Bytes Memory Available 2,800 Bytes Memory Allocated 16,774,376 Bytes Cached Scripts 256 Removed Scripts 0
but when I use
$wgMainCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL; I get
CACHE_ACCEL requested but no suitable object cache is present.
On Manual:Cache#PHP_caching I read Note: Any version of eAccelerator will work for PHP caching but if you also want to use it for Object caching as well, you need version 0.9.5 (later versions are not compatible).
Will pages load faster nontheless with
$wgMainCacheType = CACHE_NONE; ?
Shouldn't MW support all newer versions? Forcing old versions is not very userfriendly or secure.
The shared memory (that is, the object caching) parts of eAccelerator were removed in 0.9.6. You can't support what ain't there.
