APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the abbreviation 'APC' signify? Why is the existence of APC inside your account important as far as your PHP-based web sites are concerned? How can you enable this feature?
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user opens a webpage, the script links to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show identical content at all times, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
