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 Redis cache driver.
app/config/cache.php and change the driver to
'driver' => 'redis',
If you have multiple redis servers, or they're running on something other than the local machine, you'll have to edit the redis section of
'redis' => array( 'cluster' => false, 'default' => array( 'host' => '127.0.0.1', 'port' => 6379, 'database' => 0, ), ),
Redis is a free, advanced key-value store.
To use the cache driver make sure Redis is installed first. See the Installing Redis recipe for details.
