APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that can speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. When a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a website that doesn't change, for instance an informational portal that shows the same content at all times. As soon as the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is very helpful especially for scripts with larger source code.
