Posting on my board is slow....?

Post by biz0r » Fri Jul 18, 2008 3:25 pm

I upgraded to 3.0.x a while ago, and ever since my board is very snappy to browse, but posting takes somewhere around 5-7 seconds each time...which seems a bit extreme. It isn't a busy board, gets maybe 10-30 new posts a day. I just upgraded the hardware to something decent, definitely should be able to handle the current load (amd athlon x2 4800, 3gig ram, 2 x 250g 7200rpm drives, slackware linux). I have tried disabling indexing, deleting the search index, and some other things (thinking it had to do with indexing posts)...but the delay is still there...

Anyone else notice this or maybe can point me in the right direction?

What web server are you using, litespeed or apache? Have you optimized apache and PHP?

Apache 2.2.9, the php config hasn't been modified too much...what changes should I make?

This problem never happened with 2.x phpbb...so I am confused...

Hey,

Try this http://phplens.com/phpeverywhere/tuning-apache-php and this http://www.developertutorials.com/tutor ... page1.html

The caching might not really apply to you, since it really happens during posting, not really during browsing. It's still worth looking at though. If it's slow in posting, I wonder if there's not a bottle-neck at the MySQL. This is probably a stupid question, but are you running MySQL on the server that the site is on or is it a seperate server?

They are both running on the same server...and it as well is the latest stable MySQL release (5.0.51).

EDIT: Also I fail to see how this could be a PHP-Apache tuning issue...because browsing around is INSTANT...there is NO delay and I have no issues with anything other than posting.

Ok, so there's no network bottlenecks. You're machine should be plenty of power. It could be that MySQL needs to be optimized, try http://hackmysql.com/optimize as well.

What's really strange is that I'm having the exact same problem. The even stranger part is that it started happening two days ago for no apparent reason. I optimized all the tables and I'm still getting the same result. I'm waiting around for 5-10 seconds before the post goes through. Everything else is instantaneous like browsing, etc.

The same slowness happens when previewing a post.
