Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed 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 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens some page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that display the very same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
