Do I need to create a proxy server?

    I have the Perfect Setup with Fedora Core 4

    MySQL 4.1.16
    Php 5.0
    Apache 2.0.54
    ISPConfig 2.2.0​

    Since I was just testing the original setup of ISPConfig last year I installed it on a Celeron Compaq machine that should probably die in a year or two. I have about 5 websites on the server right now, but as you probably already known some web application have some latency on that Apache server. Especially those with images and large files.

    Should I create a proxy server that has a faster processor, more RAM, and just a better machine? If so how should I go about doing so? Can ISPConfig support proxy servers? Should I also think about load-balancing? We are a company with limited funds so we don't plan on purchasing a new server for another year. What do you suggest I do?:confused:

    I normally dont do this and i do say that i use more than a few proxies (free) to work my way around the net. Here are a good few.

    About the Modules for increased performance...

    Falko,
    From the link you recommended mentions only to load the necessary modules for best Apache performance. This is what my http.conf shows:
    Code:
    LoadModule access_module modules/mod_access.so
    LoadModule auth_module modules/mod_auth.so
    LoadModule auth_anon_module modules/mod_auth_anon.so
    LoadModule auth_dbm_module modules/mod_auth_dbm.so
    LoadModule auth_digest_module modules/mod_auth_digest.so
    LoadModule ldap_module modules/mod_ldap.so
    LoadModule auth_ldap_module modules/mod_auth_ldap.so
    LoadModule include_module modules/mod_include.so
    LoadModule log_config_module modules/mod_log_config.so
    LoadModule logio_module modules/mod_logio.so
    LoadModule env_module modules/mod_env.so
    LoadModule mime_magic_module modules/mod_mime_magic.so
    LoadModule cern_meta_module modules/mod_cern_meta.so
    LoadModule expires_module modules/mod_expires.so
    LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so
    LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so
    LoadModule usertrack_module modules/mod_usertrack.so
    LoadModule setenvif_module modules/mod_setenvif.so
    LoadModule mime_module modules/mod_mime.so
    LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
    LoadModule status_module modules/mod_status.so
    LoadModule autoindex_module modules/mod_autoindex.so
    LoadModule asis_module modules/mod_asis.so
    LoadModule info_module modules/mod_info.so
    LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so
    LoadModule vhost_alias_module modules/mod_vhost_alias.so
    LoadModule negotiation_module modules/mod_negotiation.so
    LoadModule dir_module modules/mod_dir.so
    LoadModule actions_module modules/mod_actions.so
    LoadModule speling_module modules/mod_speling.so
    LoadModule userdir_module modules/mod_userdir.so
    LoadModule alias_module modules/mod_alias.so
    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
    LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
    LoadModule proxy_ftp_module modules/mod_proxy_ftp.so
    LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
    LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so
    LoadModule cache_module modules/mod_cache.so
    LoadModule suexec_module modules/mod_suexec.so
    LoadModule disk_cache_module modules/mod_disk_cache.so
    LoadModule file_cache_module modules/mod_file_cache.so
    LoadModule mem_cache_module modules/mod_mem_cache.so
    LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so
    This should be ISPConfig default setup, is there any way I can increase performance by minimizing the modules being loaded?:confused:
