Gallery Performance


#1

Hello all…

I currently run a small forum and photo sharing website for my group of friends. We currently are hosted with godaddy. I was thinking about moving to here, but I was curious about what kind of performance people get with Gallery on dreamhost. Godaddy runs in CGI mode or something with the database, and it can take quite a while for the gallery to load.

Are things a pretty good speed here?

I’ll say average.

It’s better than flickr, but not as fast as some others.

I agree. There are some tricks to making Gallery run much faster here, but I haven’t applied them.

Ya, as Lensman mentioned, there are some plugins to improve the performance of gallery. I saw it before but could not find the link any more :frowning:

I do not have a gallery site. But you may want to refer to some DH customers’ websites for references http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/DHSOTM

I host www.fun-lounge.com on goDaddy and the gallery is very slow - However my car gallery mega-cars.net is hosted on Dreamhost and very fast
My other gallery http://cars.acemmedia.com has up to 2200 unique Ips per day and still is very fast
Check it yourself
I would definitely recommend Dreamhost for Gallery hosting

I’m not sure what happened (and it definitely wasn’t my crazy optimization skillz, let me tell you!), but my gallery is just screaming along now!

I can definitely recommend DreamHost for Gallery without reservation now. Though, as always, YMMV!

Yet another gallery to add the list, this is my gallery for my other hobby, that being photography, which I never seem to find enough time to do.

Have run a gallery install since joining back last year and I have never had any issues either… Plus you can’t beat the amount of space!

Did anyone else see the word “pornography” in Shonky’s post or was it just me? (It’s been a long day)

Wholly - Use promo code WhollyMindless for full 97$ credit. Let me know if you want something else!

Hehe, I’m guessing it’s just you, do I sense some built up tension there wholly that needs relieving? :smiley:

Feel free to check out my Gallery 2 install here:

The performance has mostly been pretty bad. It’s a combination of a busy shared server with the inefficient code of Gallery 2. I am going to figure out if I can do anything to make it better.
