Switching from Simplehost to Dreamhost was one of the best moves I've ever made. In virtually every respect, things are much better here. I'll never look back.
There's just one thing: my Gallery installs are performing much slower here. Also, I have to spoon feed any add-item jobs. I used to be able fill a 10000 image Gallery with one click. Here I seem to have to spoon feed a few hundred at a time. I suspect it's due to an overloaded shared MySQL server. Is that a possibility?
And if so, is it possible and advisable to install a private copy of MySQL on my own server along side the Gallerys?
Is there a better solution?
