Improving server response time performance

asked Sep 3, 2013 in General by TheRock (920 points)
I recently ran some tests on my website, and was suggested by  Google PageSpeed that my server response time might be a problem. I currently have 1GB of RAM. My memory usage is around 600Mb Now how can I improve the server response time of my server. Should I change from Apache to LiteSpeed? Or should I increase my RAM?
Any advice is appreciated

Try  optimizing the current performance by fin tuning in you’re server before making any major changes.
You can ask your provider  to optimize and fine tune the software.

Check if you have  any heavy loading  process via top. If you find any kill the processes and see if it makes any difference.
