I have a drupal site up which is currently blocked with an http password, so no one is using it but me and it seems pretty slow. Any general suggestions on how I setup caching and so on so it’s as Dreamhost friendly as possible?
I have noticed problems with extra web security, so I turned that off and I’m not sure about fast cgi (I assume leaving it off is best, because then drupal can use mod_php, right?).
Any other suggestions? I assume my bottleneck is Mysql because my server load is pretty reasonable and my other sites load pretty fast. Anything I can do about that?
