    i had that problem b4... sorta.. my host actually told me to optimize my database. at first i deleted some of the add-ons i had, but that wasn't the problem, so they banned my database. then i pretty much just went to the database and deleted a whole bunch of entries like ratings, comments, and users. that sliced my database size in half and so far so good. my host hasn't contacted me since that happened 6 months ago.

    5,000 uniques a day? The problem is shared hosting. Time to step up to a vps in my opinion.

    yes the script is very bad especialy with mysql connections ...

    i had to go on dedicated server for one of my site just because of this ...

    but a lot of optimizations can be done , like removing the random image and u can also read there forum a lot of topics about this issue ...

    @commandos - I was in the early planning stages of a image based site based on this software. What do you think would be a better alternative? I need to allow people to register, upload a few photos and share a blurb about each.

    i'm still using 4images :)

    because u can SEO it ... what i would recommend is try to read the forum and search for optimization in the program it self .

    like turn on caching , disable random pics ..

    search for " SERVER LOAD" you will have more info ...

    Good luck

    I had been one client on liquidweb, liquidweb have maximum cpu usage 15% for shared hosting, that high cpu usage .
    alternative option is hawkhost, their cpu usage maximum aaround 12%-16%.
    on liquidweb my web was suspended at more 80K UV a day. at hawkhost my web was suspended at 90K UV a day.
    other hosting , not vps, try semidedicated hosting from mddhosting or pcjaguar.
