2013-04-27: The wiki was incredibly slow. Profiling showed "query: SELECT mr_blob,mr_resource,mr_timestamp FROM msg_resource WHERE mr_r" as offender. The table had 80k entries. I simply did "DELETE FROM msg_resource; vacuum;" and it seems to have fixed it. --Spirit (talk) 19:26, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
