APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there are various websites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.
