for instance, I did a test, and installed 3 styles. it took over 15 minutes just to import the XML on all of them.
I installed Sportsbook as well, it too an hour to import that xml file.
this can't be normal? the server is very lean with only one website running on it. there are plenty of available resources, and when i monitor the DB server, there are very long delays between times transactions happen. almost 90% of that 15 minutes is spent with the db user account sleeping
