Hello dear ojs-forum,
I'm asking for help in this forum because we experience some severe performance problems with our ojs installation. OJS itself runs on an SusE Linux-Enterprise 10 operating system, with Apache 2.2.3 and PHP 5.1.2. OJS connects to a mysql-Server (Version 5.0.26) located on another network; besides the ojs-pages Apache also delivers pages managed via a typo3-instance on the same server. The problem ist that when I browse the submission list apache takes as long as ten seconds to deliver the list. I didn't measure the time apache takes exactly, but more or less it always takes ten seconds to build the list. What I did then was to take my ojs-files an copy them to my local windows-7 workstation, where I have xampp installed, but config.inc.php uses the same db-server as before, but this time the dbserver is located on the same network as my workstation. Well, the difference in page delivery is amazing: on my local machine it takes not more than 1,5 - 2 seconds! My local xampp-installation runs on php 5.3.5 and Apache/2.2.17.
What do You thinks? Could it be the elder php/apache-versions running on the production server? Are there any known problems with apache 2.2.3 and php 5.1.2 when running ojs ? Or do You rather think we are experiencing a network problem?
Any hints or hepl would be appreciated very much, and thanks fog giving us OJS!
