Thank you all. I finally switch to PHP 5.5 + memcache and everything seems to be going quite well. <br> <br>By the way, regarding Pablo of vDevices reply, I am not using WordPress, I am using my own in-house PHP scripts set up from scratch and continually improving to be maybe share one day… <br>

@Jacques: You should always use the latest stable versions of every software you use (because of bugfixes and security updates). Zend OPCache is integrated into php 5.5 if I recall correctly and it’s a better APC alternative.
