Job Description

Looking for someone who is very comfortable with wordpress and very familiaira with plesk and apache servers to do some very basic site speed work on my site.

1. enable gzip compression by modifying the apache configuration files
2. minify css
3. remove unused css

happy to take other suggestions as well - BUT - site is built on Thesis 2.3 which has an unusual css back-end - and we are three weeks away from a major launch - so I don't want anything done that could risk any compromise of the front end of the site.

Skills: apache
