i’ve got a small hobby site with a few subdomains for tinkering. i 1-click installed joomla (sweet), and defaulted through most of the options. it is painfully slow. web is on schweppes, sql is on bodger:mlodzianowski, and i’m a crazy domain insane plan.
i never really got worked up over it. i figured my budget hosting got me on near capacity set of servers. i was just asked by a colleague if i knew of any super great web hosts for a new (SUPA-BIG) joomla site we’re doing. it’s a muni site, and is gonna get a bit of traffic.
so i guess my question(s) is/are this:
- is there something i should be doing to optimize the joomla/sql combo? it seemed to be the source of teh slow.
- can i confidently recommend dreamhost to him for a joomla powered site, and if so, should i tell him to go for the baller package to get the best resources?
ps - if you’re gonna flame about how horrid your experience is with DH, please don’t waste your time. i’m not here for that. help me figure out how to optimize joomla/sql, or tell me that dreamhost + joomla isn’t a good combination for a high traffic site.
