Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that show the very same content all of the time, these actions trigger excessive 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 doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module could be rather efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
