Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user accesses a page, the script connects to a database in order 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, which is the case with Internet sites that display the exact same content all the time, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
