APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous sites which offer the very same content on a number of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is quite useful for such Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site many times.
