    Messing around with some caches and reverting my.cnf back to default.

    Can you guys let me know how quick this "feels" to load for you and how it feels to browse the site.

    Seems very responsive. For those having performance problems remember that LiNX had a major fault this afternoon when they brought their new network online and you could be experiencing a knockon effect.

    76 requests ❘ 1.40MB transferred ❘ 12.07s (onload: 11.52s, DOMContentLoaded: 1.32s)

    The thing slowing me down was twitter:

    When images is cached I get:
    75 requests ❘ 121.45KB transferred ❘ 1.89s (onload: 1.56s, DOMContentLoaded: 1.06s)

    That is with a 25/25 fiber connection.

    Why do I feel like im going to get sucked into completely re-writing my.cnf again?

    This is it at the moment :D and whilst my server load has gone up a fraction of a %, to be honest the site feels quick as before... if not quicker

    Good speed for a site over in EU (I'm in central US). 145-150ms ping and page loads are around two seconds.

    Initial load felt a bit slow, but not unacceptably slow. I'd say about 5 seconds at most.

    Subsequent loads are nice and speedy. Response time for main request (excluding assets) is around 500ms so that's quite decent.

    I'm on the east coast fyi.

    Have you used mysqltuner?

    I found it invaluable for tweaking my install (note I'm still on vB, so its tuned towards myISAM at the moment.

    I felt it was reasonable ... but the page blanking seemed to make it feel longer.

    When using Xenforo.com the Tabs don't reload when I click Members. But they do on your site.
    The blanking is what I didn't like.

    12.25 seconds to load that page first time, through a 10Mbit connection in Montreal Canada.
    3.23 seconds, on page reload.


    I compared a setup I finished for a client with an army of forums on front page and SSL connection.
    The load page is on average 1.40 seconds, very close to XenForo front page time load. His servers are located in Europe.

    11.15 seconds to load on 100Mbits connection from Australia - you have 1.4+ MB page size ! shave it down to 500KB in size and you'll improve your page load times dramatically. In comparison Floren's linked site https://www.thcfarmer.com/community/ loaded for me in 3.83 seconds and Xenforo.com front page 3.08 seconds and Xenforo forum home page 3.95 seconds

    Load time is of course all relative to where visitor is located. Best 4 sites to test from different locations are

    Well I have just shrunk some of the files down, the page should now be aprox 1.1mb in size.

    Anyone spot anything else I could do?

    Have you enabled Keep Alive? Last I checked it wasn't on.

    It's still taking a 20 MB connection ~3 seconds to load.

    Also check to make sure that your gzip and cache are setup right.

    Personally the next thing I'd do would be to start creating image spirits. For example putting those 7 ad images into an image map would eliminate 6 requests. It also looks like majority of your site icons aren't in a spirit.
