APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the content which needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with constantly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a website that doesn't change, for example an informational portal that displays the exact same content at all times. As soon as the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load significantly quicker. APC is really helpful particularly for scripts with large source code.
