Elpamsoft has released a Windows performance tweak utility so you can get the most performance out of your Windows on an SSD.

So far I’ve tried the utility on two different systems (Windows 7, 64-bit) and did notice a speed difference.

A simple tip to speeding up MySQL

Find your WordPress install sluggish? Caching not making a difference. Try adding the following lines to your MySQL servers my.cnf.

query_cache_type = 1
query_cache_size = 20M

Alot of MySQL default installations have the query_cache_size set to 0 (the default), disabling the cache. By setting it’s value to something greater than 0, it brings the cache, and your site, to life.

Check out the MySQL documentation at for details.

FreeBSD Tuning

From a posting SaveTheRbtz:

“I wanted to share knowledge of tuning FreeBSD via sysctls, so i’m posting them with comments. Based on Igor Sysoev (author of nginx) presentation about tuning of FreeBSD to 100,000-200,000 of active connections.”

LDAP tuning – Internal error 80

ldap_modify: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)

One of OpenLDAPs clearer error messages.  After much digging, it turns our this error (80) is generated when openldap does not  have enought locks.

On a side note, I came across an article in the the Zimbra wiki on performance tuning your ldap server.  Worth the read.  The tips in the article also solved the error 80.
