What's the current consensus on getting the most from Apache/PHP for a general server with a few hundred accounts on it. I'm running mod_fcgid, I've compiled APC, but I never noticed any performance gains, despite tweaking the settings. I went down the route of custom php.ini's and a wrapper in each users cgi-bin, but because the cache isn't shared amount fast cgi processes, I don't think I'm seeing any benefit, which is why the cache isn't getting hits. Well it registers 1, then does nothing with it, no matter how many pages I access on a site (this is according to apc.php). I've tried to get mod_fastcgi working, but I end up with 500 errors currently, which I need to look into. (the idea is to let php handle processes, and the child processors can share the same cache segment). I've even managed to get APC and Eaccelerator running at the same time, and from what I can tell, no bugs, but then, I'm not seeing any performance increases. Looks like Xcache will get a whirl next. Some people are saying, it's just not worth the aggro...and you're better off with a stock setup.
