APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of sites which offer the very same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.
