Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses a web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which display the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module can be very helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
