mysql is still version 3.

Egad!  They have so many things compiled in.. ugh.

What do you/are you going to use the server for?  Mainly SMF and static content?  If so, you might consider upgrading to PHP 5.  Even if not, you should upgrade to 4.3.8 (and soon a 4.3.9) which includes some security fixes ;).

The configure line also includes a lot of things it might not need.  I'd take out --enable-mbrege, --enable-dio (never heard of that?), --enable-trans-sid, and --with-ncurses at least.

It's also nice to note that MySQL 4 is significantly faster, and is the current stable release.  MySQL 3 is now an "archived" download.


MySQL 4 supports the all-powerful-and-beloved feature we call "query caching", which is just generally awesome.

You seem to be on Apache 2, which is good.

Also, since you're on a dedicated server, you might try using a persistant connection.  This should be faster too ;).



Yeah i'm just using smf and static content. I'll look into the upgrades. Check out the forum and tell me what you think about the speed.
