Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens some web page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show identical content all the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be really helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
