Getting the Most out of APC for Yii

Created 2 years ago by Da:SourcererHow-tos10 comments – viewed 27,727 times – ( +16 ) – version 1.1
The Advanced PHP Cache is a PHP extension which primarily serves as an opcode cache for PHP. The basic idea is to save PHP from re-evaluating the PHP code to intermediate bytecode on each request. Installing and enabling APC already yields a significant performance benefit. However, APC is not a black box that will magically change all for the better. More over it is important to understand that APC needs memory to operate.

Increasing AR performance in connections with Oracle

Created 4 years ago by TrejderHow-tos10 comments – viewed 17,696 times – ( +1 ) – version 1.1
Please, note. This article is entirely based on a work done by me colleague developer, who hasn't got account on this webpage and also hasn't got time for writing this article. I'm writing it for him. I will try to forward him any comments that may appear, but can't assure if/when he'll be able to answer. I'm far, far less experienced in Oracle therefore I won't probably be able to help myself.

You would find having such a need in most Yii Projects. Your database needs a specific format to store date fields, while you may want to display it in different formats to the users on forms and other views.

Creating a CSS Driven Drop Down Menu using CMenu

Created 3 years ago by blindMoeHow-tos10 comments – viewed 68,224 times – ( +22 / -1 ) – version 1.1
CMenu offers great functionality and the ability to customize just about every aspect of the output. There are many times when I need to create a drop down menu or simply modify the look to make the designers happy. Because this seems to be a common task for me, I figured I would share my code to create a very simple drop down menu that other people could use.
