APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous sites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site several times.
