If this is PHP and you are using sessions, I would guess that your sessions are blocking. With sessions enabled, each PHP client has a write lock on the sessions file and concurrent requests are blocked to wait for the session to be available for an exclusive lock. As soon as you are done making changes to a session, close it for writing and other requests will be handled. See this page for details:
