WinCache is a PHP extension, similar to other opcode caching extensions, that provides several caching features for Windows environments. It is a great option for Moodle when hosted on a Windows Server with IIS. Since this extension allows for user caching in shared memory (RAM), it is also a great fit for Moodle Universal Caching (MUC). This plugin enables the WinCache store option in MUC, which can replace the default (and slower) File cache store.

Also consider using the WinCache info plugin to monitor WinCache usage.

    Ryan, I just manage to test it with Moodle 3.0.2, works fine so far, will you be able to bump up Moodle version support for the plug-in?

    @Usman Asar, I've updated the supported versions to include 3.0, although I haven't done a full review to see if any hooks have changed. Please let me know how it goes for you. We tried using Wincache but ran into crashing issues under load, although I still believe it had something to do with our environment.
