APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, which can boost a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the website content which should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site which does not change, such as an informational portal that displays the exact same content on a regular basis. When the web pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor opens them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load much quicker. APC is really effective particularly for scripts with massive source code.
