Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user opens a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that display the same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn decreases the site loading time. The module could be quite helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
