Getting faster page loads with a MySQL server

1) Use the ODBC drivers instead of .NET drivers.

2) Use the MySQL GUI Tools and go to

Startup Variables >> Advanced Networking

Scroll down to the bottom and put a check next to "Disable name resolving"

3) Run the MySQL on the same server as the web server.  Having a remote MySQL server can cause delays.

4) Make sure the CPU / RAM usage of the server hosting the MySQL server is not being overused.

5) Configure the Remote DB Connections at

System Settings >> Remote Server DB Connections

Check the box next to "Enable Direct DB Connections" and enter the MySQL server info in the rest of the boxes.
