APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're various Internet sites that feature the same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.
