Re: [vox-tech] PHP/MySQL very slow

I can think of a couple of places where the computer's IP address is used in the PHP<->MySQL linkage.

First, in the mysql_connect("<host>","<user>","<pass>") call... but that would tend to make it fail altogether rather than just become slow... and if the DB and webserver are on the same box, then the host is probably "localhost", but it's something to check.

Second.. in the MySQL permissions. If, for some reason the permissions are configured in terms of "user@<IP>", then the change in IP would cause them to no longer be found.. and it would fall back on default permissions. Again.. I would expect changes in behavior rather than just slowness.

The site I'm working on, on a RH9 box, is presenting me with a strange
problem. It's running Apache 1.x, PHP 4.2, and MySQL 3.23. When I hit
plain old PHP pages, the site runs just fine and response time is nice and
quick. However, when I go to a page where PHP connects to MySQL, the
response is incredibly slow. Apache responds fine, PHP responds fine, and
MySQL responds fine from the command line. And everything was working
fine until yesterday.

What happened yesterday? We changed this computer's IP address. I've
adjusted httpd.conf appropriately, but I can't think of where else I might
have to make configuration changes in order to make this work.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
