Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user accesses a webpage, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which show the same content all the time, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently lowers the site loading time. The module can be really helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
