I have just got started with Moodle and everything is working fine but the performance is God awful.
The server is a Quad processor, 300G raid 1, RHEL 5
I have 20 test users and a ICT course I got from moodle.
It's the same sort of box as our email server and that can
have 1200 web mail users hanging off it at any one time and
it's still fast.
Within the school the machine is 10.130.24.95 and the internal DNS
servers point moodle.whsg.info to that address and the performance
is Ok but it's not blinding considering the size of the server.
Externally moodle.whsg.info is 18.104.22.168 and that address is
mapped thru the firewall to the internal address.
I changed config.php so that the webserver address is moodle.whsg.info
rather than the numeric ip address which it default to because if you don't
external access to fail because it tries to use 10.130.24.95
What have I done wrong
Malcolm - I do not see anything obviously wrong in what you describe; however, what version of Moodle did you install? If you turn on the performance information what kind of performance are you getting. As you can imagine it is typically a matter of tracing down the bottleneck. Are you using any type of php accelerator (like eAccelerator, mCache or APC)? Peace - Anthony
Assuming you are using apache, what does your httpd.conf look like?
