View Full Version : Database Question

April 19th, 2005, 08:43 AM
Hi, I was wondering if it is better to have vBulletin, Photopost and Reviewpost running on a different database or on a same database. My web server (dedicated) becomes very slow when there's more than 30 people viewing, and then it keeps crashing when there's around 50 people viewing the gallery, and it is becoming highly annoying to reboot every time it crashes... Currently, the three are using one database with different prefix. I think I've seen other Photopost installations with way more people than that, and it's rather hard to understand.

Would anyone know if there would be less load on the server if I moved the Photopost and Reviewpost data to a different database (on the same server)? I'm sure many of Photopost users will be interested in speeding up their server..

Does anyone know if there are any other ways to reduce server load?

Vbulletin tends to be very server intense. I would run in a separate database personally. You can set not to use who's online probally the best load saver

Thank you. Hopefully this will help the server not to crash..
