    I have a server that is dedicated to one client with multiple WordPress sites including one account with hundreds of client subsites. With page speed becoming an increasingly important aspect in terms of Google rankings we're looking for ways to boost the response rate. Most recently we've looked at adding Google's own mod_pagespeed via EasyApache. It comes with some possible complications in conflicting with other optimizing systems either at the server level or via WP plugins.

    This page is instructive regarding pagespeed:
    webhostinghero.com/blog/cpanel-modpagespeed-installation/

    Opcache is already installed for all versions of PHP.

    Other possibilities are switching to LiteSpeed Webserver.
    And/or installing Varnish (proxy caching).

    Currently, the main optimizing plugin in use is Hummingbird:
    premium.wpmudev.org/project/wp-hummingbird/

    So, we are hoping to get some sage advice. TIA!

    Thank you for the links. That first one, in particular, seems most relevant. Clearly, there's not one simple solution, but maybe a combination of Litespeed and Varnish might be something worth trying.

    Also, looking at tuning MySQL to improve performance there. Any hot tips on that?

    Hello @ramorse,

    I recommend going with Litespeed exclusively first if you can. Litespeed provides an official plugin for integration with cPanel & WHM. You're welcome to explore using Varnish, but understand it may require a significant amount of development work to get it working with cPanel & WHM.

    As far as MySQL tuning, a MySQL tuning script is often a good place to start. There's one discussed on the following thread:

    Thank you.
