    Lightbulb Move Magento Cache to RAM by tmpfs

    Pretty straight forward.

    First important is to check which user / group has the current permission, no point of loading a ram drive if magento can’t write to it.

    so

    Code:
    cd /home/magento/var/
    then perform

    Code:
    ls -a
    Should give you a basic view of the current owner.

    Now, we can create our tmpfs drives.

    Code:
    mount -t tmpfs -o size=128m tmpfs /home/magento/var/cache/
    then

    Code:
    chown user:group /home/magento/var/cache
    
    chmod o+w /home/magento/var/cache
    Perform the same for /var/sessions

    Their you go, you now have a very fast magento cache

    Only downside if you reboot you shall have to remount them, otherwise you can add them to you /etc/fstab

    I think moving /var to a tmpfs is probably not your biggest bottleneck and would likely be more trouble than its worth. Make sure Magento caching is enabled and you have APC enabled.
