My main config is Apache/Centos 7/WHM/Redis/OPCache/PHP7.1/MariaDb/PHP-fpm/Http2 and have optimized my server to a great degree. It's a 32GB dedicated HexaCore. I have worked really diligent to get the server optimized over the last few weeks and the state it currently is in, it's pretty dang fast. Now so you know I am not tooting my own horn, I will preface by saying this, I am the furthest away from a server admin as anyone can be, but I get by.
My question is: When serving up an local asset like CSS (/style.css) over HTTPS it takes about 2 seconds longer to load. A big part is the time of 800+ms for the style.css to load over https, ugh. So I am asking how can I use http2 to my advantage with Craft? I want to run in HTTPS all the time but not with the handshaking lag. Any suggestions or examples would be greatly appreciated.
In case you are tempted to say go Nginx, I would love too but unless you are volunteering, at this time I cannot put myself through an Nginx install.
