    We just started blowing up twitter and went from about 15 online people to a couple hundred. Our site slowed down MAJORLY. What are some things I can tweak to handle the massive load of users better?

    Wow your site is slow and there only seems to be 13 users online at the moment, are you sure you didn't have this problem previously?

    It was fine literally until we tweeted the site to about 10,000 people...

    Something must be wrong with your host.

    Adminforums is on shared hosting with 20 members/200 guests online at most times and everything is fine.

    if the pet board and oldrow are on the same server ... it is a host problem.
    Both seem slow to me.

    Do you have APC installed on your server? If not, install it. Now.

    cPanel, I think I found your problem :D

    Anyways, make a php file and place <?php phpinfo(); ?> in it then open it up, look for a section labeled APC.

    Also, you should realy update your php to 5.3, and mysql to 5.5. while your at it updating to the lastest version of apache can't hurt either.

    No need.

    It's built in to XenForo; just navigate to admin.php?tools/phpinfo

    :D even knowing that if I ever had to find my php info id still make a file and put that inside it. Old habbits and dying hard and all that :)

    It looks like APC isn't installed, do I need to have my webhost install it?
