Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites which display identical content all of the time, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be very efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
