I am looking for a solution to improve performance on my VPS by isntall some caching addons for my vps. I searched on google and found some like Varnish, Memcached / Memcached with PHP and Squid but I could not clarify which is the best and how to install all of them on a VPS or just one. Can you guys share your suggestions?

Hello,

Redis is currently the best for caching php code, but there are two category of cache. You can cache files to store them in memory or you can cache php code to make less queries to your database.
What do you want to run with a cache system ?

PS : I'm currently writing a thread on redis

I would like to know all the ways that you can share me, in my personal opinion, it is better to store files and queries into RAM which reduces queries on MySQL server and speed up php codes.

I have searched and read tutorials about installing memcached on the fourm but not ever used Redis or install memcached for php. If it is easy to install and configure then I want to give it ago.

Caching php code is the most important because it doesn't require a lot of ram even with big database, as it's only code and queries. And because mysql it's one of the first component to use CPU and disk access. For files it should not be needed if you use nginx as it can handle thousands of queries/s and use only few mb of RAM.

So you should definitely try redis. I will post my thread about it in the next 6 hours.

Never heard about redis :)

But if it is good, I may give it a try.
