Apache How To Improve performance?

I switched from my old nginx forum to apache xenforo and while the pages are served faster, the page load from my server doubled. That is because of apache. Do you know a webpage which specializes on optimizing apache for forums? I am thinking of a list how to compile apache, which modules to remove ...

Use Expires directive for static content such as jpg,png,CSS,etc.

I can't post mine because I'm on the iPhone but will post it later if I get the chance.

Cheers,
Shaun :D

I have cached all static files already. I switched servers and on the new server I first wanted to try out apache, if it is really that slow. nginx was fast for sure :)

It caches them on the visitors browser so they don't need to be requested from your server:

Code:
ExpiresActive on
ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 day"
ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/ico "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/icon "access plus 1 month"
These are the ones I have in Apache at the moment.

I am on a dedicated server. These are the modules I have activated/deactivated now:
# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Statically compiled modules (those listed by `httpd -l') do not need
# to be loaded here.
#
# Example:
# LoadModule foo_module modules/mod_foo.so
