Apache Booster & Performance Improvements

Since last few weeks, I was learning "How to optimize websites", because I had great issues with my own personal website, I never received more than 60% rating for my website from gtmetrix

But Yesterday, I found one way, through Apache booster installed on my VPS (Virtual Private Server)

It improved my website load time to an extent, that now it is around 92%


So If you want to use it , then simply run following commands on your linux machine

wget #-Link-Snipped-#

tar -zxf apachebooster-v1.3.tar.gz

cd apachebooster

sh install.sh

Please note this requires root access on your server, these steps won't work on shared hosting

    I recently wrote about my experiences with Litespeed web server; which is a drop replacement of Apache: Litespeed Vs. Apache web server - Real world page loading speed test results . The speed improvements are more than noticeable and the graphs confirm the same. Do you have any informaiton on what exactly Apache booster optimises that it offers so much of performance gains?

    Also, how do Apache booster compete with Litespeed?

    @#-Link-Snipped-# Check this out, Apache beats Litespeed in Benchmark : UNIXy.Net Fully Managed Servers and Clusters | Apache vs. Litespeed: Apache Runs 95% Faster Than Litespeed

    However, according to #-Link-Snipped-# ,Litespeed is quite faster in serving static webpages, however there is almost no difference in performance in Dynamic content.
