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 boost such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites that display the very same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be really effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
