Re: How to evaluate server speed?
I do have access to my.cnf so I’m now off educating myself about the basics of mySQL configuration so I can enable caching without screwing something up.
Meanwhile, though, I have some more data points. In phpMyAdmin > Runtime Information the following variables are highlighted in red, meaning they are outside desirable range.
The last is supposed to be a strong indication that my table cache value is too small (no surprise since it’s zero!). phpMyAdmin provides useful tips in interpreting these values, but as a mySQL newbie I’m still having trouble deciding how to act on them. Suggestions welcome.
As always, thanks!
