How to Configure APC Cache on Virtual Servers with PHP running under FCGId

…roperly with apc.stat=0 because the config settings and files are dependent upon database and php, which will be cached as files or opcode. After you have sorted out your opcode settings, you may switch apc.stat=0 and restart the web server to turn off polling for better performance. If you cannot get APC to configured correctly for your WordPress sites, I suggest WP Super Cache and WP Minify… that combination will probably have a better ef… 24, 1, 2, 0 and 2911.81

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

…umber slightly above the reported highest usage. Doing so will allow you to set higher values for the individual cache settings which affect the thread cache size, because the total thread buffer memory size is multiplied by maxconnections. Feedback is available in the reports for “Total buffers” and “Highest usage of available connections”.

WordPress with W3 Total Cache on Nginx with APC (Virtualmin)

Virtualmin now includes support for Nginx web server. I deploy many WordPress sites with W3 Total Cache and APC Alternative PHP Cache, so I was very interested to see how Nginx performance compares to Apache for WordPress, and whether APC and W3TC would play nice with Nginx. I prefer to install WordPress in public_html/wordpress for ease of development, compatibility with other scripts, etc. Accordingly, the suggested configuration is for WordPr… 16, 1, 1, 0 and 974.94

APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

…and you will need somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-30GB apc.shm_size if you attempt to configure a single APC cache for the entire server. My web hosting server is for a small number of personal clients, so I adjust the APC settings for each individual account, depending on the number and type of PHP script packages running on the account. These accounts are all administered by myself, not by the clients. I do not think APC is the correct cach… 6, 1, 0, 0 and 415.97

Apache and MySql Performance Tuning for High Traffic WordPress Website on Cpanel

…server with 8GB RAM, it was crashing frequently under load. The developer tried implementing APC Alternative PHP Cache and W3 Total Cache, but these measures turned out to be incompatible with some of the custom PHP code and the software architecture of the Cpanel server. Haphazardly implementing randomly suggested “solutions” had actually made the problems worse, resulting in an “own goal” that brought down the server. I… 8, 0, 0, 0 and 415.97

Fail2Ban Regex for RedHat, Fedora, CentOS and Amazon Linux 2013

Fail2Ban is a very efficient daemon that scans log files for malicious activity, and offers several options to ban offending IPs and hostnames. Although it is highly configurable, it requires a depth of knowledge beyond that required for GUI-accessible firewalls such as ConfigServer Security & Firewall.

WordPress Fail2Ban RegEx for RedHat, CentOS, Amazon Linux

VacantServer WordPress sites are getting hammered with bad logins and probes. We’ve implemented a plugin to log failed login attempts to syslog, and a Fail2Ban filter for the same.
