Default Server Caching system installed, database tweaked - Info Inside

Today we installed caching software on our server. The DAC system is run by scripts written in a programming language called PHP. Normally everytime a request is done to a page the PHP interpreter reads the PHP file, compiles it, then executes the code. So if 50 people request a file, it will be complied 50 times.

With the cache software on the first request for a file the PHP code is read and compiled, but the compiled version is stored. Then future requests are served this compiled version from the cache. This dramatically reduces the load on the server and improves performance.

Additionally we have tweaked the database settings which greatly improves the database read/write time.

The DAC search index has not been full restored, about 1/4 of the posts have been indexed. We hope to begin this procedure tonight.
