Thanks James. I'll definately give that a try. My test server has 1 gig of ram. In the
my-huge.cnf example it says that it's mainly for servers that have mysql as the main
process. On my production server, I have 1 gig of ram, but it also runs apache,
mutliple webstites, mysql, DNS, ftp server, etc... It's a dedicated server that only
hosts my sites so I can tweak the configuration. Should I use the my-large.cnf as a
starting point, or should I be OK with my-huge.cnf?

that you just use the alternative my-huge.cnf file is because that is a ready-prepared
config file optimised for systems with lots of RAM for MySQL to use. You don't need to
know which variable to change - it's already done for you. You may want/need to tweak
stuff later, of course, but my-huge.cnf is a better starting point than my.cnf.
