Support » Plugin: Index WP MySQL For Speed » Install for Awesome Performance

  • TLDR; Massively increases site speed in terms of database queries. Install it, you won’t regret it!

    Long review (because authors deserve it): My use case is a a high post site (400k posts targeting a few million by next year). 300k monthly uniques, increasing 10% monthly. I use the WP REST api to post articles and was frequently getting 50x errors when uploading images/posts. This plugin saved me!

    To give you an idea of performance gain:
    Virtual Server:
    Quad core, 8gb RAM
    Before this plugin: upload 2x posts simultaneously and server would give 50x errors. All 4 CPU cores were maxed out and server had stopped responding!

    With plugin and table indexing activated: I can now upload 5x 2,000 word posts, with images, simultaneously and CPU usage doesn’t even max out one core!

    Plugin has saved me spending 100+ on dedicated hardware, which would have cost thousands annually. Authors should really think about adding a premium version with even more performance gain 😉

    I would pay in a heartbeat!

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I’m happy you didn’t try to solve your database performance problem by throwing hardware at it. That almost never works and just wastes money and electricity.

    If you haven’t yet done so, you might consider adding a persistent object cache plugin to your site. It will help you scale up your viewership.
