OK if you don't mind can you give some details where the bottlenecks are on
your site. If you started getting a lot more web traffic what component do you
think would affect the performance?

Would it be database or dynamic content generation (PHP, Java, etc)? Do you
use CGI, FastCGI, or a Servlet engine? How does Java scale under load?

What about doing FastCGI with custom applications written in C instead of PHP?
