if any photopost users have a gallery with over 100,000 pictures please contact me, i have a few questions regarding performance.

We've about 130.000 images at the moment. A more important factor for performance are the number of categories and albums.

1. http://fotogalerie.herr-der-ringe-film.de
2. PHP 5.2.5 fgci, on FreeBSD
3. Basically the same. We've a database server and a webserver. Biggest difference probably is that we're using memcache to cache the user's permission. That's the biggest bottleneck at the moment if you have a large number of categories.

your page is generated in 0.88100 seconds with 3 queries, how did u add that comment?

another difference is the random pictures we add 30 in the index page. and no caching - with out this - i the load time is minimal.

You can enable that output by modifying pp-inc.php. Search for $showsqldebug and set it to 1.

You'll have to use caching to get fast page generation times.
