APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Uncover what the acronym ‘APC’ represents, precisely what APC can do PHP overall performance-wise and the way to activate it for your account.
APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, which can boost a database-driven website several times. Every time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a site that doesn't change, such as an informational portal which shows identical content all the time. Once the pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load a lot faster. APC is really helpful in particular for scripts with larger source code.
