APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content, there are a lot of sites that present the exact same content on a number of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this type of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website many times.
