APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are numerous Internet sites which present the same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this type of Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.
