Does "cleaning up" the site also involve making it a little bit less heavy?

You can try changing your tables storage engines to InnoDB if MyISAM, if using MyISAM. If using MyISAM, you can also optimize tables with phpMyAdmin or similar tool. I discuss this in this post:

https://www.phpbbservices.com/2015/12/0 ... ge-engine/

But it could be the underlying issue is not in the database. If you are running PHP 5.6, an upgrade to PHP 7 will give you about 50% better performance. Make sure your version of phpBB can handle version 7 and make sure you know the maximum version of PHP supported by your phpBB version.

Upgrades in general can help, if you need an upgrade.
