What is the recommended Page Cache method on W3 Total Cache plugin for VPS users?

What is the recommended cache method in the W3 total cache plugin for page caching method, CSS & JS minifying method, Opcode cache, Database cache and object cache respectively?

There are several options for VPS or Dedicated server users such as -

  1. Opcode: Alternative PHP Cache (APC/APCu)
  2. Opcode: eAccelerator
  3. Opcode: XCache
  4. Opcode: WinCache

I think Alternative PHP Cache is the solution. But I am not sure about that. Please help to troubleshoot.

Hello, @shubhabratasvpsl

I will also recommend you to use the Opcode: Alternative PHP Cache (APC/APCu) option. In order for everything to work fine, make sure that APC is enabled/installed on the server as well.
