Ok, so I’m sporting Varnish and Nginx now on the site, and I’ve made a number of tweaks since yesterday. I’m no longer running Apache at all. Good riddance. I’m highly enthused about software that performs well and has simple configurations. Nginx conf files are so clean compared to those of Apache.
Some things remain:
- Sometimes the front page takes a moment to load if I haven’t hit it in a few minutes.
- Images in posts fail to show up sometimes.
- I need to get my real IPs showing in my logs by compiling in an option to Nginx.
- Look into PHP caching.
- Look into additional Varnish optimization.
And if you guys notice any speed improvement, or decline, or have any ideas on further tweaking I can do, please let me know. ::
