I have a few wordpress sites (about 6) on a cloud server and until recently they worked ok. There have been serious downtimes lately and the only way i've found to bring them back is to optimise the options table in phpmyadmin. This works regardless of the overhead which never exceeds 50k anyway.
Anyone run across this at all?
My permalinks are set to /%category%/%postname%/ in all cases and i know this is supposed to cause some performance issues. However these sites have very few posts on them.
