APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites which offer the very same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site a few times.
