APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the acronym 'APC' mean? Just why is the existence of APC inside your account important as far as your PHP-based Internet sites are involved? How to activate this feature?
APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous sites that present the very same content on a number of of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.
