The server’s running on new software now. Replaced Apache with nginx, and am now using PHP via PHP-FPM. I may remove the latter, though, in favor of just the basic FastCGI interface — this isn’t exactly a high-traffic site, so doesn’t really need FPM per se.
I’ll go into more details in another post. So far, though, I’m very happy — maybe it’s just me, but I really think I actually notice the difference in the site’s performance.
I figure it’s a good time to also play with the site’s theme and layout. So far, though, I’ve not found a theme that looks good and doesn’t make my code snippets look like crap.
