APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the site content that needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a site which does not change, for example an informational portal that shows the very same content at all times. When the web pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load significantly quicker. APC is really useful in particular for scripts with massive source code.

These customizations are done without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
