This evening, I installed PHP Accelerator 1.2p3 to the system which results in MUCH faster page serving from this site. Some results of testing the front page are below.

25 Hits of


  • 1.22 sec/page
  • 49.23 pages/min


  • 0.60 sec/page
  • 100.33 pages/min

As you can see, this small addition has nearly doubled our page output.

UPDATE 02-20-02: I also enabled GZIP compression to further speed up transfers.

Please let me know if you experience any weirdness.
