I've been running my test websites (WordPress) on my QNAP, but loading the pages could take 15 - 20 seconds (TS 869, Intel) which is just ridiculous. So after some digging I found that the caching by default was not enabled in Apache.

To enable this, you'll need to login to your QNAP with SSH and type the following:

nano /usr/local/apache/conf/apache.conf

After the line that load the PHP module (LoadModule php5_module modules/ add the following line:

LoadModule cache_module modules/

Close Nano (CTRL+X, Yes, press ENTER) and restarts Apache:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -k restart

If that doesn't work well, do it in two steps:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -k stop
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -k start

And your webserver will be faster ... (takes about 2 seconds to load a page after that on my QNAP)

Note: If you have a slow QNAP with limited memory, then this might not work. In such a case you might want to look into LoadModule disk_cache_module (modules/, where Apache caches on disk instead of memory (see also: this Apache document).
