1. Use a fast web server, check out nginx or lighttpd instead of apache.
2. See http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 63&t=29885 for a couple of things you can do to speed up Wordpress. http://gtmetrix.com/ is also a good site to check the speed of the website and get recommendations for improvements.
3. Get a fast (upstream) internet connection.
4. Not an answer to your question but you could use something faster than Wordpress.

Please stop apache first. Or you will get a port error.

WP Fast Cache helps a lot and is about the easiest to setup of the cache plugins. The faster web servers help some too.

Your site would not come up for me.

You should be able to see 3.5 second page load speeds with very little trouble.

I am surprised. See the stats at http://stats.pingdom.com/cm97jhu1pp23/929603. You can also take a look at http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130813_9N_RHW/ for some additional performance results.

Pingdom runs test from many parts of the world and they average about 670 ms (range from 1.5 sec to .2 secs). I see similar results from webpagetest.org site as well. You should try for your website as well to compare.

I am trying to be convinced about the ability to run a fast (under 1 second response time) web site hosted using RPI and WP.

Do you mind checking again for me. I had the wrong cache timeout setting at the Varnish server level causing cache misses every few minutes. its fixed now.
