APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each and every page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous sites that have the same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for such websites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website several times.
