That seems like a premature suggestion.  We have absolutely no idea what
version of apache this guy is using, what kind of load, what his
configuration looks like, where the performance bottleneck is, etc.

Performance tuning is hard.  Without a detailed assessment of what is
going on, any suggestion would be a wild guess.
