APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that can boost a database-driven website several times. Every time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a website that does not change, such as an informational portal that shows the same content on a regular basis. As soon as the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a user opens them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load significantly quicker. APC is very effective especially for scripts with massive source code.
