Currently contracting in the PHP/Admin/Scaling space in London, UK (or telecommuting). If you have a problems with a slow LAMP-based website, I may well be able to help, and have already done so with a number of other startups and more established companies.

I'm PHP developer, that loves to keep up with technology and write some really elegant software code to help my sites handle mid-to large scale and many users.

comment Is it possible for Apache to display PHP source code if PHP crashes?
There was a report a few years ago where a Facebook server showed PHP script source. However, the webserver software had not been installed properly, and so the code was not being run by the PHP runtime, hence it was downloaded as plain text. Not a failure of PHP though.

comment Gzip Piped to Rsync
There is an option gzip --rsyncable that makes the output file more rsync friendly (at a tiny increase in size), but it's rarely used.

so, it's not being used. It doesn't appear to be any firewall then from the local machine.

comment APC minimal shm size
Did you actually put 15 in there, because that would try to allocate 450 megabytes. Try with 2. Also, why do you want so much? I'm running a Wordpress install, and there is less than 20mb in APC for the PHP files to be cached.
