Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user opens a web page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which display the same content all of the time, these actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module could be very helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
