Painfully slow phpBB response times

Post by seanblee »

Hi all,
I'm hoping someone can help find (or at least steer me towards) a solution to a case of serious slow running of phpBB on my site. The forum is hosted at http://forums.disco2.com and is running the latest phpBB.
I am leaning towards it being a problem caused by the fact that the server is ancient (dual Sun SuperSparc 20s - I don't know what these are, but I believe they're very slow :S). There is a php info page on the server at http://forums.disco2.com/info.php.
Thanks in advance!

It is most likely the server. Is GZIP on or off?

GZIP was on when I started, but I turned it off a few months ago because I read somewhere else that it's more server-intensive (and hence slower).
Thanks!
