Hello. I have a popular weblog powered by WordPress. It’s popularity has been increasing in the lastest months (more than 8,000+ unique users a day for example) and it is serverely hammering the server and afecting other clients on the same machine.
I’ve been doing a lot of MySQL optimization, activating caches (eaccelerator) and WP-Cache 2.0 and I forward all my RSS subscribers to Feedburner. Still the load is high. I disabled some scripts with not much effect. These are the ones I have installed:
– Brian Lastest Comments
– Cat 2 tag improveed
– CJD Nuke Spam
– Search Hilite
– Image Browser
– Markdown / Smartypants
– MW Next/Previous
– Subscribe to comments
– Weighted Categories
– MT Underlined URLs Fix 2
Hope someone can help me or give me pointers on this. Thanks a lot 🙂
Edit: I recently optimized tables on the wp database.
