Looking for any tips on improving performance on the server level as my client will be getting some heavy traffic in the next few days.

Using a 1and1 cloud vps and increased the memory pretty high on the server. Is there anything I need to do to apache to make it start using those resources?

You might also consider offloading your static assets (JS, CSS, images) to a CDN like Amazon Cloudfront. – ceejayoz Jan 11 '12 at 17:39

Have a look at Apache Performance Tuning (scroll past massive advertisement).
