I’ve spent the week playing with all sorts of settings on the server. It’s now running dramatically faster. So dramatic that the whole thing could be made into movie staring Tom Cruise called “The Midget vs. MySQL”.
Not that I’m a midget. It’s just that Tom Cruise is.
In any case, everything should be running much better now. I also pretty much rewrote the entire image site code, piece by piece as I was optimizing things, so it’s much cleaner now and is running much faster aswell.
So, hooray. 🙂
