Yesterday the IIS Team released a cool new module for IIS 7.0, the first beta release of the Windows Cache Extension 1.0 for PHP.
The Windows Cache Extension for PHP is a PHP accelerator, that is used to increase the speed of PHP applications running on the Windows operating systems.
Any PHP application can take advantage of the functionality provided by the Windows Cache Extension for PHP without any code modifications. All that is required is that the extension is enabled and loaded by the PHP engine.
– The extension can only be used with non-thread-safe builds of PHP
– The extension can only be used when IIS is configured to run PHP via FastCGI
– The Windows Cache Extension 1.0 for PHP 5.3 can only be used with the x86 VC9 build of PHP 5.3.
– PHP opcode cache
– File cache
– Relative file path cache
