    You cannot use xcache together with suEXEC, it is not efficient as each PHP process creates its own cache memory.

    You can try eAccelerator with cache storage in /dev/shm/, but some user experiencing some PHP compatibility issue. Should turn off the optimizer in eAcc. You can search related topic on this forum.

    Just comment out xcache related configuration form php.ini
    Yes, eaccelerator should help.

    Maybe you can try disable XCache first, see if any difference.

    If improving a lot, it should explain XCache is the problem -- no cache is even better than with XCache. Then can go ahead to try eAccelerator.
