Yesterday i had a problem with fastcgi, a lot of errors from mod_fcgid. I switched for suPHP.
Do you think nginx (or varnish) + opcode APC will be a good combinaison for this project? At the moment i can't run fastcgi, but i will find a solution soon (i hope).
You can PM me, I am always willing to help people with my knowledge
What you basically need it wordpress plugin which will provide you with caching technology, varnish can sometimes delay page updates - for example user will post his entry and it will be cached by varnish only after 5 minutes. Also he can consume large amounts of disk space if you're not familiar with its config options. But I think unixy can solve this for you.
Basically you need one good-tuned cache option, varnish is the best caching of course as it is working on the http level, not on the php-requests like any opcode.
opcode will not give you that much of speed without wordpress caching, there will be tons of different requests which APC or eaccelerator will not be able to handle. And as for nginxcp - it will not deliver the cached pages itself - it will only proxy your requests and maybe cache them for a while. You need to setup your own nginx instance with its config, which will most-lileky be hard enough is you're allowing many subdomains\addon domains, but ca be done easily if you're only allowing 1 WP blog per account.
So I am against many cache-levels but this is only my point of view.
Are you sure you will use cPanel? You can build-up some custom setup with nginx and caching maybe, but if you'll go with cPanel then varnish is most-likely will be enough without any other plugins like nginxcp, etc.
And in this scenario you don't need opcode caching so you can just stick to pure suPhp
Hope this helps
