Windspeed Setup

The server needs to have run at minimum 24 hours before the mysql tuning can be performed. Other steps can be performed prior.

MySQL tuning

Direct SSH steps:wget perl

Make a note to the side about the recommended settings provided and adjust values from the tuner in /etc/my.cnf

service mysql restart

Upgrade MySQL to MariaDB 10.0 or newer.

Apache configuration

From WHM, go to Service Configuration > Apache Configuration > Global Configuration. Adjust the following values accordingly:

Start Servers - 15
Minimum Spare Servers - 15
Maximum Spare Servers - 30
Server Limit - 1024
Max Request Workers - 300
Max Connections per Child - 15000

PHP handler “fcgi” will also help.

.htaccess modification

Add the following to the end of the .htaccess files for domains on the server:

# Use Mod_deflate to compress static files
<ifmodule mod_deflate.c>
<filesmatch "\.(js|css|ico|txt|htm|html|php)$">
