#6779 Intermittent performance problem with MediaWiki in project web


I'm experiencing intermittent extremely poor performance with a recently installed MediaWiki instance at http://opie.sourceforge.net/wiki/ in my project's project web. Sometimes pages load fine; a lot of the time though they take 20-30 seconds to load; may come back with no CSS/images displayed, and may even return a 503 Service Unavailable error.

I had hoped that increasing PHP's memory limit to 32M (which I requested and received permission to do) would fix this, but it seems to have had no effect.

    It might be worth noting that performance of other PHP applications (such as Mantis at http://opie.sourceforge.net/mantisbt/ ) is fine.

    Thank you for this report, we do keep an eye on the performance of the platform as a whole and try to improve it where possible.

    Also, I recommend you reconsider your permissions on your MediaWiki app, it seems that it has recently been hit by a spammer.

    You're right, thanks for pointing this out. However the performance problem persists and when I go to undo the spam edits I am again experiencing extreme delays in page loads and the errors I described above.
