Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user opens some web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the same content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently decreases the site loading time. The module could be really useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
