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 effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites which display the exact same content at all times, these actions trigger needless 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 doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
