APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site several times.
