APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which feature the exact same content on a number of of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is very useful for this type of websites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site several times.
