APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a site which does not change, such as an informational portal which displays the very same content on a regular basis. Once the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is really effective particularly for scripts with massive source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is available with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you can enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
