Reducing Load - With Wordpress

Feb 20, 2008

I have a HUGE blog with over 15,000 posts that constantly runs the mysql database like NONE other.

I am just wondering, is there a way to reduce load? I am top 100,000 in Alexa and I get over 2,000 uniques / day. What can I do about this?

Reducing Apache Load

May 24, 2007

My load average seems a bit high considering how few processes are running:


Is there anything I can do to reduce the load generated by Apache?

You can see the Apache2 server status info here:

It's serving 20-25 requests per second, which are mostly these tiny requests to tracker.php which issues a database query and returns an image. The relevant httpd.conf settings:

Timeout 120
KeepAlive Off
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers 8
MinSpareServers 5
MaxSpareServers 20
ServerLimit 512
MaxClients 256
MaxRequestsPerChild 4000

This is a dual Opteron 2212 server (4 cores total) with 4GB RAM.

Apache :: Reducing Bandwidth To Virtual Host?

Jan 2, 2013

I'm going to use my apache server to host files(it works with a php script so we can't use FTP for now...) so I was wondering if I could limit this virtual host's bandwidth per second so the websites on the other virtual hosts still load properly. Any module for apache on windows which can do this?

Apache :: Reducing Time To First Byte (HTTPS / SSL)

May 1, 2013

I'm trying to improve the performance of my website and noticed that https pages take really long to load:

[URL] ....

[URL] ....

It appears this problem is caused by using https, because when I open my site without https it loads pretty quickly.

[URL] ....

From what I can see it appears that the main problem is the time to first byte, so my question is how can I reduce this?

My virtualhost for SSL is set like this:


DocumentRoot "C:Program Files (x86)Apache Software FoundationApache24htdocssite 2"
ErrorLog "logs/"

[Code] ....

I have replaced the real paths with "PATH" for security reasons. How to reduce the time to first byte in general. I tried setting up memcache to accomplish this but I didn't notice any changes...

This is my mem cache config:

<IfModule mod_mem_cache.c>
CacheEnable mem /
MCacheSize 10000000
MCacheMaxObjectCount 100000
MCacheMinObjectSize 1
MCacheMaxObjectSize 262144

Update: Just ran the openssl speed command [URL] ....

Reducing Server Power Consumption? Underclocking? Ideas?

Feb 16, 2008

What are the best ways to reduce server power consumption?

I have a Dell Poweredge 860 (2.4ghz QC, 5GB RAM, 2 HDs) and it uses 0.46AMPs when running normally. The problem is at boot up it spikes for a few seconds here and there to about 0.6 and this is a real problem as I only have a 0.5AMP allowance.

Should I underclock it? Remove the CD Drive?

Apache :: Reducing TTFB (Linux LAMP Server)

Mar 1, 2015

I've just switched my Apache and PHP config over to linux(ubuntu 14.10).

Apache 2.4.12 is using the mpm-event worker and PHP 5.6 is running in FastCGI/fpm mode.
I'm running MariaDB 10.0.17

I'd like to reduce the time to first byte even more, its currently 80 ms for static files and 110ms for PHP generated pages.

1. 80 ms seems like a lot, since the ping to the server is <15ms

How can I reduce this? Are there some tweaks for the Linux networking stack or Apache that I can apply?

I'm also using SSL, I remember it could be tweaked to improve its performance but I don't remember how..

I currently enabled the following in my main apache config:

ServerSignature Off
ServerTokens Prod
TraceEnable off

EnableMMAP on
EnableSendfile on

UseCanonicalName On

2. Is there a mod_spdy for Apache 2.4? what about http 2.0?

3. Can I tell PHP to make use of unix sockets to connect to the database server? (I heard unix sockets is faster)

4. I've installed memcached for PHP, can I also use this for Apache?

Website Extremely Slow To Load/doesn't Load (numtcpsock)

Dec 20, 2007

I've been having trouble with my VPS for a while now. In the QoS alerts page in Virtuozzo it seems to be a problem with numtcpsock and tcprcvbuf, mainly numtcpsock.

Copy these into the browser:

And when i run cat /proc/user_beancounters:

This line is particularly scary:
numtcpsock 164 164 166 166 7321

What do i need to do, to get the website running again? It's only one site on the vps a proxy. So i thought a vps would be able to handle one proxy.

Some Sites Load Slow, Some Sites Load Fine, Server Load Is Fine

Aug 12, 2008

I'm having the oddest issue. For some reason, some of the websites on my server load fine, and some take a really long time to load (2 minutes).

Now, the server load is fine, and the size of the sites aren't the issue either. I've restarted Apache and a couple more services, and still the same sites seem to load very slow.

What could be causing this since it's only effecting certain websites?

PHP & Wordpress

Jun 18, 2007

Just logged in to Spam Karma 2 (for wordpress) and noticed this message inside ht e2nd chance Captcha Check of Spam Karma 2:

Your install of PHP seems to be missing the GD library (or a more recent version is needed). You should ask your host to update the GD module for PHP and disable the Captcha module until then.

Can we get our server management company to install this? More importantly, wanted to know the risk of installing the GD library. It's not going to cause any critical things to break is it?

Wordpress CPU Usage

Nov 2, 2009

For some reason, one of my clients wordpress blog is using 100% cpu on a php process per page load. To clarify, the first time you load the page it is very slow, and uses 100% cpu for the PHP process and then if you reload the page (while it is going slow) it loads very fast. After that is done the normal PHP usage per page load is roughly 1-4% if that.

I'm guessing something in the coding is looping, but I am unsure. What I do know is 100% cpu usage for one page view initially is insane.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix/resolve this issue?

Regarding WordPress Hosting

Oct 23, 2009

I don't have Linux or whatever I just got Windows XP or Vista.

I'm not an expert at creating websites, I find it difficult. I don't want to have to install databases or msyql manually, I just don't have a clue and would rather leave it.

I just know how to use WordPress and I want a WordPress hosted site.

I would like to know if there are any sites similiar to this:

Which includes stuff like cPanel & Fantastico

Fantastico looks brilliant as I can simply install WordPress in a few clicks without having to mess with FTP and database/msqyl etc.

Does anyone know any reccomended sites that use Fantastico for Windows Vista which I can install WordPress easily?

(I don't want to use '3ix' as I have seen ALOT of negative reviews)

Wordpress Backup

Jul 19, 2009

I am using version 2.3.1 on one site which I need to import over to However, a long time go the link to the back up options page disappeared and even upgrading does not help to retrieve it.

My problem being that over at the main site you need a WordPress WXR file to import with from a self hosted site. As mentioned that is not an option and I must have it imported somehow. I cannot also access the plugins page.

Supports Wordpress Mu

Mar 15, 2008

I had no problem installing Wordpress Mu with iPower. Unfortunately iPower really sucks for performance (I have paid one full year though so I have to keep them ).

So I have moved to Hostgator but I'm struggling: there are many things that need to be done to be able to install it and I can't even do it myself only the admin can.

At the moment I'm still waiting.

So I'm looking for another webhosting service again - though I will stay with hostgator because of their outstanding support service - just for being able to install Wordpress Mu.

Please recommend me reliable wordpress hosting with fully functionality.

Low budget,5GB webspace and 5GB bandwidth will be enough.

If it's possible reccuring billing from month to month would be best deal,because of low budget.

Lighttpd Url Rewrite Help For Wordpress

Jun 4, 2009

I'd like to use lighttpd on my server but it doesn't support url rewrites for wordpress. I have a VPS running on kloxo and i have 4 clients using WP2.71 with permalinks.

After searching i found something really nice:
Create a file called /etc/lighttpd/wp-rewrite.conf with the following contents:

url.rewrite-once = (
"^" + wpdir + "(wp-.+).*/?" => "$0",
"^" + wpdir + "(sitemap.xml)" => "$0",
"^" + wpdir + "(xmlrpc.php)" => "$0",
"^" + wpdir + "keyword/([A-Za-z_0-9-])/?$" => wpdir + "index.php?keyword=$1",
"^" + wpdir + "(.+)/?$" => wpdir + "index.php/$1"

Then, in your /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf, you should have something similar to this:

$HTTP["host"] =~ "" {
var.wpdir = "/"
include "wp-rewrite.conf"
source: [url]

what i want to change is this part:

$HTTP["host"] =~ "" {
var.wpdir = "/"
include "wp-rewrite.conf"

Disable Wordpress RSS Feed

Oct 21, 2009

way to disable my Wordpress's RSS feed, because I have figured out another website just copies my content via my RSS feed.

I have searched and found three interesting results, which actually all 3 do or suggest you to do the same thing.
plugin: disable rss

This works perfectly to disable /feed, but unfortunately /feed/rss will still perfectly work?

I can't see why all those developers just post this, without having actually tested if it really disabled the RSS feed. But can somebody recommend me a good way to disable Wordpress's RSS feed?
