I did a fresh install of WP 2.0 from 1.5.2. Deleted the whole database and started over. Now every time I click on anything in the dashboard, there's a 20 second delay before anything happens most of the time. It's making using this blog a real pain. Last time I clicked on something to update the page I got this error also:
WordPress database error: [Lost connection to MySQL server during query]
SELECT meta_key, meta_value FROM wp_usermeta WHERE user_id = '1' AND meta_key = 'postlevels_user_level'
Which I will see in top of the browser on a blank page quite often, before the page will refresh. Is this just something we have to deal with till the next update? Or is there some issue going around? It's not my ISP since any other site runs fast as usual. WordPress 2.0 runs slow as hell though.
