APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Discover what APC (PHP Opcode Cache) is and how it will impact the PHP performance inside your web hosting account.
APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're a lot of websites that present the very same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site a few times.
