Server Optimization

Hi Matt,

I used you a few years ago and you did a great job. This weekend we got off Gentoo and formatted the server and are now running CentOS 7. The hosting company got me up and running and my forum is running... but it needs help.

The PHP (7.3) and MySQL and MariaDB are all at their defaults.

Before the update our server load was around 0.11 and now our server load is 42.50 with mysqld reporting its using 2245 % CPU!

We are using NGINX as our web server.

Is this something you can help with?
