Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses a webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show the very same content all of the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently decreases the website loading time. The module can be pretty efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
