MySQL and most other databases require adjustment of server settings, and especially of
table structures and indexes to achieve the best performance possible.
If you haven't examined index usage for the queries you're running, or adjusted server
memory settings from defaults, then it's no surprise you would get poor performance.
I don't have the inclination to dig through your code; however, if you extract the actual
queries you are running, then run EXPLAIN <query>; that will show how it's using
indexes. You can put that information here, along with the SHOW CREATE TABLE
<table> \G output for all tables involved, and someone here should be able to help
diagnose why the queries might be slow.
