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 speed up such a site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user accesses a page, the script connects to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the same content at all times, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
