Indeed, serving a static file is a LOT faster than proessing PHP+MySQL queries and then building the page from that every load (when nothing has changed).

And it's less work that your servers have to do... which leaves more processing power for me! :)

What kind of software are you using for your site? Either you can hire someone who knows what they are doing to clean your site and make sure that this doesn't happen again or start fresh with a secure site.

Also, take a look at CloudFlare. This will help keep your site safe from hackers.

In Topic: cookie-less subdomain

Sorry for not updating this thread. I decided that it wasn't really necessary after all.

First you must move the images to a different (sub)domain that is not included in any cookies you set.

Although this would work, it's not the easiest way to do it. You could set a CNAME subdomain to point to your domain and call static resources from that subdomain. You don't have to move anything this way.

Second you would need WordPress to "know" that these images are located in a different location. I imagine there must be a plugin for this, but I am not aware of any off hand.

W3TC has a feature that allows you to have a "self-hosted CDN" and it does exactly this.

Lastly, you need to be sure that nothing on the domain you use for images creates any cookies.

That's what I had trouble with.

You could also look into using a CDN service for this which would add some additional benefits (and costs, generally). We also offer a plugin for CloudFlare which provides a lot of optimizations, bandwidth savings, and even improves your security. Their basic plan is not only free, but very feature rich. They also offer premium plans with enhanced features and SSL support. With regards to CloudFlare, I strongly advise using the cPanel plugin instead of signing up with CloudFlare directly. The plugin does a lot of DNS work in the background and saves you a lot of headache in the event of IP address changes.

I've been using CloudFlare before most people knew they existed, actually. I didn't know that the CF cPanel plugin does backend DNS work; that's interesting.

Have you ever given thought to running the Percona release of MySQL? It's said to be significantly faster than the Oracle releases, and it's a drop-in replacement... kind of like Apache and LiteSpeed (except that Percona is free). I might have mentioned this to you, but I don't recall it.
