As LittleBizzy uses MySQL 5.6 which is vastly different from older versions of MySQL, many settings are now different by default, and configuration is not the same recommendations as earlier versions of MySQL. One such setting that was always recommended prior to version 5.6 was ‘query cache type’ however this is no longer recommended in 5.6 as innoDB has become the dominant type of storage engine in MySQL 5.6+ and the new (similar) setting which is more important to configure is called innoDB buffer size.
We generally don’t “over configure” MySQL unless on high traffic sites, i.e. our Premium plan or higher. Just because, the default MySQL 5.6 settings are considered “safe” for most setups, albeit not as optimized. However if you notice slowing, or a plugin is making recommendations re: slow SQL queries i.e. the free Query Monitor plugin, do feel free to get in touch and our team will see about tweaking some settings in your server’s MySQL configuration files.Last modified: 25 Oct, 2015
"After being hosted on GoDaddy for years, I didn't realize how negatively it was impacting my search traffic. Soon after moving to LittleBizzy, my homepage went from page 3 on Google to #1 world-wide for my target market, and I also reached the top 3 on Google Maps, with no additional SEO work."Juliette S.
"Before moving to LittleBizzy, whenever our news website was featured on the Drudge Report, it often slowed to a crawl or even froze up during big traffic spikes. Now, that never happens anymore, and we've been able to focus on publishing more articles instead of worrying about our web hosting."Tony H.
"The research by Amazon is definitely true, because our slow WooCommerce store was bleeding sales. After LittleBizzy stabilized our performance and moved us closer to our target customers, we saw a measurable improvement in shopping cart checkouts, esp. during holidays... much better!"Mohammed H.
