My SQL Database Fragmentation

  • Hi everyone,

    I notice that when I want to publish a post, or when I want to assign categories to my posts, it seems to take forever. A fellow blogger friend tells me it’s because the database, over time becomes fragmented, and that it happens with several blogging programs. I tried going into my cpanel, clicking my php admin, then clicking to optimize the database, but still nothing has changed. Would anyone here know what else I can try?

    Thanks.
    Lisa

    How many update services are you pinging in Options/Writing?

    Actually, I had it set up to ping quite a few of them. I deleted all of them except for Pingomatic, and now the problem is fixed.

    Thanks Nacmanx!

    Yes, beware of pinging multiple update services. As you can see, Pingomatic pings quite a few update services on its own. Pinging multiple update services can have a significant impact on your posting time. And pinging an update service more than once consecutively, could result in your IP and blog being banned from the update service.
