APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the abbreviation 'APC' signify? Just why is the existence of APC within your account important as far as your PHP-based web sites are concerned? How to turn on this feature?
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens some web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites which show identical content at all times, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be very helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
