Optimaized settings for Apache.

Hello. I have 1 Gb ram VPS and want to optimaize my Apache settings to run XenForo forum with high traffic to the site.

In httpd.conf i have this: <IfModule prefork.c> StartServers 4 MinSpareServers 5 MaxSpareServers 10 ServerLimit 50 MaxClients 25 MaxRequestsPerChild 1000 </IfModule>

<IfModule worker.c> StartServers 4 MaxClients 25 MinSpareThreads 25 MaxSpareThreads 75 ThreadsPerChild 25 MaxRequestsPerChild 1000 </IfModule>

Is it good for 1 Gb or very low settings for high traffic. Thanks!

It really depends on your app (Xenforo) and how many plugins/themes/etc. you have installed. I suggest starting with a 1GB droplet and scaling up as needed. You can use for benchmarking.

For a high-traffic site, you’re better served by Nginx w/caching.

First is IfModule prefork.c <br>Second is IfModule worker.c
