  • Reducing server load

    Yesterday I had a spike of 300 users and according to my ISP, I hit a server load of 50. They shut me down and I had to change some settings to reduce the load. I turned of gzip, for instance. What are some other server intensive options I can turn off to reduce server load?

    turn off the search feature
    turn off user access masks if you aren't using them
    up the flood control limit
    make sure persistant connections are turned off in your config.php file

      I had user access marks on, and turned them off. What exactly are access marks and how are they used?

        user access masks make it so you can set forum permissions at the user level, but they add additional queries to most forum pages.
