Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user opens a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites that show the very same content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
