I did more testing and I can get the load time down around 3 secs but only if I don't use the main categories page of awpcp classifieds. I have many categories and I believe that the queries to retrieve them are lacking in some way.
I'll be examining them later. When I select settings reading static page > view categories load times improve to < 4 secs. It is when I'm choosing the main classifieds page as the main page the sites drag down.
Either way I'll have to quash all the work I've done and try again for something more stable with less hacking. Oh I went over everything from the headers down. Couple gotchas with the rss being included and the switching from one css to another.
I've tried with good results wp-minify. I'm pretty sure the rest of the drop in plugins are not going to help terribly much. Heck I'm even running mod_pagespeed on it all.
I'll try again to get the cluster working properly soon enough. Upgrade everything heck MySql is even supposed to be faster lately.
