8GB RAM VPS Configuration Help


New member
I just bought a 8GB RAM VPS. Can someone send me their my.cnf file I can use for mysql/percona (I use percona)? I am aiming to get posting speeds like this site. I am also using APC caching like this site.

Well, just blindly changing the my.cnf wont help... you need to find out whats causing you the slowness to start with...
What is your Provider Hosting?

If you have a managed service, you can ask they to optimize your MysQL settings. They are relative at your consume, visits, traffic, etc.
My database is 900MB on a server with 64GB of RAM, however using CL with only 6GB assigned to my xF installation. 8GB is more than enough for most forums. Can you paste your my.cnf here and provide your URL?
