WinCache Functions Reroutes
NOTE: wincache.rerouteini was removed as of
WinCache 18.104.22.168. It has been replaced with automatic function reroutes. See:
The WinCache functions reroutes (available since WinCache 1.2.0, removed since WinCache 22.214.171.124) can be used to replace built-in PHP functions with their equivalents
that are optimized for a particular purpose. WinCache extension includes Windows-optimized implementation of PHP file functions that
may improve performance of PHP applications in cases when PHP has to access files on network shares. The optimized implementation is
provided for the following functions:
To configure WinCache to use the functions reroutes use the file reroute.ini that is included in
WinCache installation package. Copy this file into the same directory where php.ini
file is located. After that add the wincache.rerouteini setting in php.ini
and specify an absolute or relative path to the reroute.ini file.
Example #1 Enabling WinCache functions reroutes
wincache.rerouteini = C:\PHP\reroute.ini
If WinCache functions reroutes are enabled it is recommended to increase the WinCache file cache size. This
can be done by using wincache.fcachesize setting.
The reroute.ini file contains the mappings between the native PHP functions and
their equivalents in WinCache. Each line in the file defines a mapping by using the following syntax:
<PHP function name>:[<number of function parameters>]=<wincache function name>
The example of the file is shown below. In this example the calls to PHP function file_get_contents()
will be replaced with calls to wincache_file_get_contents() only if the number of parameters passed to
the function is less than or equals to 2. Specifying the number of parameters is useful when replacement function
does not handle all the function's parameters.
