I've just setup a fresh server, running nginx, php5-fpm and mysql +APC. No further tuning has been done yet.
transferred a website from my old server and check loading speed. In my opinion I have a huge waiting time, see my results: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/zVPVHsiA1/pacura.ru about 809msecs compare that to rtcamp.com http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/gc3WBEGab/rtcamp.com with about 110msecs
Where does the wait come from? nginx? mysql?
