APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're various sites that offer the same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is really useful for this kind of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website many times.
