…handle much higher traffic, more user sessions, with less RAM use. Your site or server will not scale well if it is running Prefork MPM.

Tuning Apache and MySQL for Best Performance in a Shared Virtual Hosting Environment

…ll & LFD. This will help prevent brute force probes, port flooding, DDOS, etc. If you have 600 virtual hosts running on a server, it is very likely that the server is experiencing constant malicious exploits, especially if you are also running email servers on the same IP addresses. If your host does not support ConfigServer (e.g. Amazon AWS and some VPS may not play well with CSF), you may use Fail2Ban. Tune Apache the Sane Way (Requires Bas… 1, 0, 1, 0 and 1271.3

APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

APC cache does not work well in a virtual hosting environment unless PHP is running as FCGID, and every individual virtual host has a unique PHP.ini and a unique fcgiwrapper. This is not the case with many virtual hosting environments because the memory and CPU requirements are too great. I suggest using Virtualmin for a shared hosting environment with APC cache, because it does allow to set php.ini and fcgiwrapper for every individual virtual h… 3, 0, 0, 0 and 402.15
