Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show the exact same content all of the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn lowers the site loading time. The module can be quite efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
APC is available with every single web hosting package that we offer and you can enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide several releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
