    I have a dedicated server with WHM/Cpanel. I have Apache 2.2. and most of the accounts on the server run Drupal sites, a couple of Wordpress blogs, and a couple of OpenX Adserver instances.

    I'm wondering what the purpose or (or when to use) the Apache modules mod_cache and mod_mem_cache.

    I searched this forum and didn't find much on the topics.

    Also, on the Drupal discussion forums, I'm seeing alot about installing memcached and the PECL memcache php extension, and APC.

    Does anybody have any advice on how to proceed, and is there any conflict with memcached, pecl memcache, and APC with Cpanel?

    I would not expect any major conflicts with cPanel/WHM by using either of the Apache modules or customizing their configuration. As a precaution, when testing new modifications I would try implementing changes in small steps, where each unique configuration change is followed by some level of testing to ensure that hosted content is still accessible normally, such as testing PHP-based scripts if the change affects the PHP configuration (e.g., new PHP extensions via PECL).

    Moderator Note: I've relocated the thread into the cPanel and WHM Optimization forums area to help increase attention and ensure more relevant feedback for the unique inquiry.
