APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database which 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 site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content, there are a lot of sites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of websites as 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 again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.
