Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens a webpage, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any 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 in turn decreases the website loading time. The module can be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
