[wp-hackers] APC-Nginx-Apache problems / memory problems on VPS

The place I would definitely start is finding where the bottlenecks are in your code so you can see where you need to improve performance. 

What's the theme you're running? (It doesn't matter if it's from a reputable company, it might still not scale.) How many and what plugins are you running? How many users do you have? How many posts do you have? How many pages do you have?

Your best hosting solution depends enormously on all these things and more. Run SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST; on your mysql db to see if there are queries that are hanging up. 

My point here is that the hosting you outlined sounds more than adequate, so you probably just need to tweak things.

Thanks Daniel, and Braydon.

I spent quite a lot of time investigating the best solution for my particular needs, and I'm are convinced that the Apache+Nginx combination is the best for these needs. I also spent some time to get everything installed and working. All I need at this point is a hint as to where the glitch might be.
