I installed a LAMP server and enabled MySQL remote connections but I'm experiencing really bad response times when connecting to the database remotely from a WordPress install.
I've been looking around for hours for a solution but all I could find had to do with setting "skip-host-cache" and "skip-name-resolve" to true. I've done that and I'm accessing the server via IP, but the problem still persists.
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Apache 2.2.22
- MySQL 5.5.24
There are only a handful of people accessing the server so load isn't an issue either.
I'd really appreciate some help with this.
