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”. After you have the proper settings for maxclients and maxconnections, restart http… 32, 0, 1, 0 and 3865.79

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 2244.23

Varnish VCL and Config for WordPress with W3 Total Cache

…ems to work for all WordPress features, including logged-out commenting. This configuration also works well with W3 Total Cache. This configuration is for Varnish on a separate server, but should also work on a single server with appropriate changes to the port and backend IP settings.

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 1089.69

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… 6, 1, 0, 0 and 415.12

Punk Rock Music Community

Punktastic.com is a community powered site that covers punk music in Britain, but is poised to go worldwide. They cover punk and hardcore shows and festivals, and provide album reviews, video interviews and more.

SSL and CloudFront CDN Support for WebFonts via .htaccess

…and the SSL pages on the client’s site were throwing security warnings. At first I thought this might be a W3 Total Cache issue, because upgrading to the latest development release had solved some other CSS issues. However, it turned out to be a browser security issue. Evidently this is a security measure to prevent cross-site attacks, but you can allow this via Apache mod_headers, to allow your specific CloudFront (or other) domain, specif… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 155.67
