I have a very strange problem - my server responds quite slowly even though it is basically unused: Apache seems to be less snappy than what I would expect and MySql responds to queries sent via PhpMyAdmin after at least 3/5 seconds even though this could be a simple SELECT and the table only has 10 records. The query itself is fast, but it takes a while before this is run. Interestingly the same query run throuh the command line is instantaneous without any delays.

I've been reading though everything I can find, but none of the solutions seem to apply to my case. Can somebody point me in the right direction?

It can be a resolution name problem.

Check how phpMyAdmin connects to mysql (ip, localhost, socket ?).
