I'm trying to optimize a website that I've developed (OK...my FIRST website) and am just learning about caching database queries, static resources, etc. For the database stuff and some page sections, I'm using Zend_Cache. I'd also like to somehow "cache" one of my scripts, which is where I house almost all of my functions for the website. I only use a few functions per page, but for organizational purposes thought it better to house them under one roof. After doing a bit of online snooping, I think that I need an "opcache". After doing a little bit more snooping, it seems that Zend Optimizer does this automatically (Is this true?). I looked at the phpinfo() on my host and it is in fact enable. So...does this mean that my php function script is already being "optimized"?
Hopefully this question doesn't sound too dumb. All of this caching vocabulary is only a few days old.
Any help would be appreciated,
