I have an AMD Athlon 1400 with a gig of ram and a 20 gig HD. It was running Moodle and some other LAMP programs, but Moodle was the only one generating any real traffic. Until the summer, it had 256 megs of ram. It got an upgrade to the gig when school started, and has run quite well. I am running a stripped-down version of RH 7.3 (no gui, etc.).
Suddenly (like in the last week), the Moodle slowed to a crawl. It took forever to log in. My gradebook program hasn't suffered the slowdown, and the survey program seems as fast as ever. I posted a link in class while the kids were working on something. All was snappy. They went to log in 10 minutes later, and while 1 or 2 in the class finally got in, the rest gave up.
I have looked through the posts and can't seem to figure out where to start. I upgraded to 1.1 when it came out, and haven't touched settings since the upgrade.
If you have an idea, please send it my way... Tom
