I made the decision to set up the PHP APC module on my small server to be able to quicken things a bit. Setting up the information wasn't any large problem (running Ubuntu with apache2, php5) but for whatever reason I am getting some trouble initiating it.

After running the command 'pecl install apc', I received several status information in the system based on which everything labored fine, ending using the lines:

Build process completed successfully
Installing '/usr/lib/php/modules/apc.so'
install ok: channel://pecl.php.net/APC-3.0.18
configuration option "php_ini" is not set to php.ini location
You should add "extension=apc.so" to php.ini

Now the moment I add the road extension=apc.to my php.ini file and restart apache, this site remains blank: no error messages or anything, only a whitened page. Basically take away the line again, everything dates back to normalcy.

In other lessons I've read the instructions make it possible for and configure apc belong into another file known as apc.ini. Also, basically operate a phpinfo script on my small server, underneath the section "additional ini files parsed", it shows the entry /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/apc.ini. However, basically lookup this file underneath the given path and add the extension=apc.so line there, exactly the same error happens.

I don't determine if there's a different way to verify whether installing the apc module went without problems however the file "apc.so" is available during my folder structure and so i think that to date everything labored fine.
