VPS Configuration titanpunch.com

I was initially contacted back in November by Russ on XenForo enquiring about tweaking their VPS with Wiredtree. I was contacted tonight by @Qwk86gn to start the work.

It's a standard Wiredtree VPS running CentOS6.5 and Cpanel.

The major site on there is titanpunch.com which is having a decent growth in traffic with the impending release of the game.

Further details on the progress of the site can be found here:

The VPS was running suPHP and a basic my.cnf config. I switched the site to mod_ruid2, and tuned MySQL based on XenForo making heavy use of InnoDB.

After work done:

0.37 seconds down to 0.21 seconds.

There is still further work to be done, as their other site needs ionCube enabled for the cart add-on. Once they have migrated that site off, I'll be doing more work and enabling Xcache and configuring that up, so they can make use of OPCode Caching and storing the sessions in memory.

I noticed Mod_ruid2 being one of the default options now on WHM/Cpanel in the Easyapache rebuild.
Do you think it's preferable to use that, over say, FastCGI?
I never used SuPHP because it just seemed slower, plus it didn't work with Opcode caches, so always stuck with FastCGI.

I use mod_ruid2 on all the cPanel builds I do for people (including the shared hosting on here)

Yeah, I've noticed that on clean installed of cPanel it's one of their recommended stacks now.
