You want to speed up Laravel's cache.
You know by default Laravel uses the file cache driver. You want to use a speedier cache.
Use the Memcached cache driver.
app/config/cache.php and change the driver to
'driver' => 'memcached',
If you have multiple memcached servers, or they're running on something other than the local machine, you'll have to edit the memcached section of
'memcached' => array( array('host' => '127.0.0.1', 'port' => 11211, 'weight' => 100), ),
Memcached is a free, high-performance, distributed memory object caching system.
To use the cache driver make sure Memcached is installed first. See the Installing Memcached recipe for details.
