One additional optimization that's saved my skin on a very high traffic
PHP-driven site is a PHP opcode cache, like APC
(http://us2.php.net/apc). Was an opcode cache being used on the old
server and, if not, would you consider running one on the new server?
It makes a heck of a difference when you cut out that PHP compilation
step with every page load. :)
