LAMP versions affect commenting performance? (3 posts)

    Had been testing out WordPress 2.0.1 on two Linux machines.

    Spec 1:
    Apache 1.3.34
    PHP 4.3.11
    MySQL 4.0.25

    Spec 2:
    Apache 2.0.55
    PHP 4.4.2
    MySQL 4.1.16

    Commenting on machine 2 is slower. Any ideas why? Everything else works satisfactorily.

    Ok I managed to get a 3rd (!!!) machine and installed Apache 2.0.55 *but* without SSL compiled into the code and not loading it up either, and the problem went away.

    Hopefully this helps someone out there. I can't believe that I'm the only one who has encountered this problem. But I guess most WordPress sites don't use SSL. It's just that on the machines available to me, the other apps need SSL.

    *phew* Am glad I found the "culprit". Developers: you might want to be aware of this.

    I might add that I don't quite understand the problem though - am not even accessing the site via https. Am using plain old "http". Hmmm.

    Ok I'm wrong - tried recompiling Apache without SSL on the machine with Apache 2.0.55 on it and the problem remains.

    I'm officially stumped - there's no pattern to this at all. The only thing that I can conclude is that I can only use Apache 1.3.34 with *my* WordPress.

    Hope you guys out there have better luck.
