Fix speed issues WordPress site on CloudLinux cpanel server


I'm having a problem with a specific site on a cPanel VPS (cloudlinux) that is slow. A lot of users complain about the speed of the site. But the speed of the backend is even worse. It take ages add a new page, or do any other action.

PageSpeed Score (75%)

YSlow Score (64%)

Pingdom grade D

Optimalisations done:

WP fastest cache is installed & configured

Image sizes are reduced

WP is up to date

Site is behind cloudflare

LVE limits for this site are extended

OpCache + mod_lsapi is enabled in EasyApache 4 profile

Load on the VM is rather low:

[root@xxx ~]# uptime

10:29:07 up 72 days, 22:32, 1 user, load average: 1.54, 1.77, 1.86

VM details:


4vCPU (1 core per socket)


250 GB SSD

Average cpu usage: 40%

vmware Hypervisor:

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 v2 @ 2.00GHz

2 sockets

8 cores per socket

32 logical cpu

132 GB RAM

Average CPU usage: 30%

So we are quite sure the server should be fast enough to handle this traffic.

Internet connection:

The server is in a DC which has interconnectivity to the major internet exchanges in Europe.

It has a gbit uplink. With a speed test I get 770 mbit down and 660 mbit up

I have other (WP) sites running on the same server that are running very fast. So I don't think it's any server or infra issue, but rather a WordPress issue.

I'm looking for someone that can do the following tasks

1) asses the WP & server setup

2) find out what exactly is the problem

3) provide a detailed action list what needs to be done to solve this

4) help us with or execute the provided action list

It's important that you both have WordPress & cPanel knowledge.
