    Am I the only one who feels sad for Apache? I mean really it's a long long time I've been flaying that flag... not that sad though... sad... that's when my "I think I can, I think I can) chugger of a vps attempts to serve a page request on my WP LMS... (I don't have to spell that one out here do I? learning management system.) You can almost hear it groan... now to be fair it's just a 4 and 4 VPS on Softlayers public cloud and it's development.
    The short version is... server in dev and no traffic, really slow though, php/mysql little swaping and cpu util up.
    centos-release-6-9.el6.12.3.x86_64
    php 56
    mysql 5.6.35
    apache Apache 2.4,

    lots of latency, sometimes 5 minutes waiting for plugin to install or activate...
    seems significant set of my issues beyond the reach of faster web server, but planning on it all the same... forecasting steady increase of traffic next 24 months

    Questions:
    php 7
    cloud LINUX
    memcache or other options
    Am I right in my assumption that open litespeed doesn' tcare about CPUs
    also planning wp plugin
    any comments regarding open or not for the server.
    Noticed this in an article by Patrick Sexton on cache control:

    https://varvy.com/pagespeed/cache-control.html
    If you have a multi cpu license, you will have access to advanced cache directive via the online configuration.
    If you do not have a multi cpu license then you will need to use the .htaccess file for Cache-Control. The instructions above for .htaccess work for Litespeed servers.

    how significant is this?
    Thanks all...
    Anxious to play.
    Cheers!
    Mike
