Heh, the server does run quite a lot of other stuff. Many of the of
virtual hosts use php and a pile of other things, so turning stuff off
isn't feasible. I could try a dedicated, light-weight httpd server
though... Being a separate process would open up the opportunity to
renice the process as well.

As for more resources... the server is maxed out, so any further
upgrades would require a new server, which just isn't in the cards in
the near future.

Mods; Please remove centos.alteeve.com from the mirror list for now. As
soon as I get a dedicated webserver up, I'll post again to re-add it and
see how that goes. Sorry for the hassle.
