APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are various sites that present the same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site a few times.
