Reducing multiple wordpress websites TTFB
Once the homepage is loaded, the subpages load quick enough. My guess the server has a hard time loading all the Wordpress PHP, Ajax scripts and what not which causes the slow loads. Loading purely a
TTFB averages 5 to 15 seconds, 30seconds or even refuses to load. Turning off plugins or changing themes helps a little bit but doesn't take care of the problem.
I use the W3 total cache plugin. I tried to switch on/off some of those options without too much difference in result.
Are there tests I can run that can find the cause of this? Or is there some memory or Apache setting that I can fine tune that will speed things up? I feel like I've researched all I could on this subject without any luck

APC is no longer needed in Ubuntu 14.04. It doesn't support PHP 5.5 which comes with its own built-in Opcache cache instead. To ensure that it is enabled, edit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini and change:
;opcache.enable=0 to opcache.enable=1
$ php5enmod opcache $ service apache2 restart
