Optimising Django on Dreamhost

12th March 2009, 2030

After deploying the first version of this website to Dreamhost I couldn't help feeling that the site was feeling very slow. This was to be expected as I have read many horror stories about the performance and support of Dreamhost but I wanted to investigate a little closer to give them the benefit of the doubt. This blog post documents the process I went through and the improvements I made along the way.
