My Server's load and mysql usage are higher than usual and recently I see about 350 processes for each HTTPd and mysqld.

Is there a web server or caching proxy to cache PHP as HTML?

I suggest you to use nginx as reverse proxy with cache ability. There was a discussion about this, check it here

+1 Thanks, Does this method still interacts with database? – Zim3r Oct 21 '12 at 17:20
It is your web server that interacts with database. nginx in this case is a web proxy. If you explain your scenario in details maybe me or someone else will be able to help you little more. – Hex Oct 21 '12 at 22:35
Thanks again, I added a few details to my question. – Zim3r Oct 22 '12 at 4:45
What about using mysql query caching? Check the documentation: – Hex Oct 25 '12 at 19:28
Thanks, I'll try to configure MySQL with Query Caching and see the results. – Zim3r Oct 25 '12 at 19:40
