You should have previously worked on large wordpress nginx sites hosted at Linode.com.
Should have experimented with various techniques to optimize the site for better performance in terms of:
1. Good pageload speed.
2. Less CPU usage
3. Optimum use of servers resources to gain maximum visitors.
The site to work on is a pretty big one. Around 400.000 uniques/month and double the pageviews. Our current Linode 1024 server is very busy with our current config, and we would like to finetune it and leave the site running with on the same VPS but much quicker and without consuming such big resources (CPUs are almost always 100%)
Your work is to:
1. Work on various settings of the nginx and wordpress to enable wordpress to perform the best.
2. Work on the code to reduce queries whereever possible to enable fast loading and less CPU usage.
3. Optimize mysql tables or structure to reduce CPU usage and optimize performance.
Will be giving this project to only those who have lots of experience in this and will explain a point to point plan on how they will go about this.
