    Hi guys,

    I am moving this WP blog from a LSWS server to Nginx using CentminMod. The blog has fairly decent traffic and almost all posts have a few images. (It's a tech related blog)

    Both server have the same specification. The idea is to have better speed (page load time) and be able to server a bit more traffic using same resources.
    Currently I am using default setup with php 5.4 and APC. (Server spec in m sigi)

    Should I switch to ZendOpcode cache?
    Will WP-Super cache be a better option? (or any other cache setup)

    What will you recommend to be get the most out of my server using Nginx?

    optimisations are left to end user but other Centmin Mod users are free to chime up

    Super cache is more problem free than fastcgi_cache and works well see my blog at wordpress7.centminmod.com

    PHP 5.6 > 5.5 > 5.4 > 5.3
    Zend Opcache > APC Cache

    Hi George,

    I know optimizations are left for end users and it make sense since every server has its own needs. (can't apply same settings to everyone).

    I am just looking to see which kinda setup is preferred. Or what people here are using and will recommend.
    I guess if I upgrade PHP I can switch to Zend Opcache. (which would give some boost)

    How about WP Super Cahe vs Fastcgi-cache + pagespeed?
    Or can we use SuperCache along with it?
