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

…site from affecting overall server performance. Joomla and PHPbb have code that is pre-optimized with hooks for APC, but WordPress requires a plugin called W3 Total Cache. First Things First Please read my posts about APC on commodity virtual hosting servers and Apache and MySQL performance tuning before you begin. If you are running your virtual servers under FCGId, then you should do so for all virtual servers on your machine. Why? Because the… 2, 1, 0, 0 and 5511.65

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… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 2430.85

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 1026.94

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… 6, 0, 0, 0 and 779.95

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

…by the publisher after responding to a plea for assistance in a WordPress.org support forum. Though the site was running on a dedicated 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 suggest… 2, 0, 0, 0 and 350.98

Apache config for Worker MPM vs Prefork MPM

…dle much higher traffic, more user sessions, with less RAM use. Your site or server will not scale well if it is running Prefork MPM. Worker is a bit more difficult to set up properly, and has some restrictions regarding functionality of PHP scripts. To determine which MPM is running: /usr/sbin/apachectl -l If you see worker.c in the list of loaded modules, your Apache is running Worker MPM. If prefork.c, it is running prefork.

Varnish VCL and Config for WordPress with W3 Total Cache

I have been working on a Varnish front-end for Apache, to be used with WordPress sites. I described the architecture in Load Balancing Virtualmin WordPress Hosting Server with Varnish on AWS. I now have a configuration that seems 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 serve… 0, 0, 3, 0 and 116.99
