What version of PHP are you running? If you’re running PHP 5.6.x, you might consider enabling OPcache with a configuration like this:

[opcache]
opcache.memory_consumption=64
opcache.interned_strings_buffer=4
opcache.max_accelerated_files=4096
opcache.revalidate_freq=600
opcache.fast_shutdown=1
opcache.enable_cli=1
opcache.enable=1
opcache.dups_fix=0
opcache.load_comments=0
opcache.use_cwd=1
opcache.validate_timestamps=1
opcache.save_comments=0
opcache.enable_file_override=1
opcache.inherited_hack=1
opcache.protect_memory=2

Also, lower your KeepAlive timeout, and follow the documentation here for a performance boost:
