Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses some page, the script connects to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites that display the same content all the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
