MySQL tuning

 # The MySQL database server configuration file.
 # You can copy this to one of:
 # - "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" to set global options,
 # - "~/.my.cnf" to set user-specific options.
 # One can use all long options that the program supports.
 # Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
 # --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.
 # For explanations see
 # http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/server-system-variables.html
 # This will be passed to all mysql clients
 # It has been reported that passwords should be enclosed with ticks/quotes
 # escpecially if they contain "#" chars...
 # Remember to edit /etc/mysql/debian.cnf when changing the socket location.
 # Here is entries for some specific programs
 # The following values assume you have at least 32M ram

 # This was formally known as [safe_mysqld]. Both versions are currently parsed.
 # * Basic Settings
 # * Fine Tuning
 key_buffer		= 2000M
 max_allowed_packet	= 16M
 thread_stack		= 128K
 thread_cache_size	= 8
 # This replaces the startup script and checks MyISAM tables if needed
 # the first time they are touched
 myisam-recover		= BACKUP
 max_connections        = 500
 max_user_connections        = 500
 #table_cache            = 64
 thread_concurrency     = 300
 table_cache            = 30000
 open_files_limit       = 65000
 #innodb_force_recovery =6

 # * Query Cache Configuration
 query_cache_limit       = 50M
 query_cache_size        = 300M
 # * Logging and Replication
 # * InnoDB
 # InnoDB is enabled by default with a 10MB datafile in /var/lib/mysql/.
 # Read the manual for more InnoDB related options. There are many!
 # You might want to disable InnoDB to shrink the mysqld process by circa 100MB.

To enable Apache modules gzip, deflate, expires and headers in Ubuntu:

 sudo a2enmod gzip deflate expires headers

Reduce CPU usage of webcrawlers: robots.txt

Ona typical installation just:

cd /usr/share/koha/opac/htdocs
sudo nano robots.txt

And add:

User-agent: *

Check at <yourserver>/robots.txt
