Server configuration updates

Zwooooooosh! If you feel like these pages are loading a little quicker lately, this might be due to the new server setup established around a week ago.

Until then, each HTTP request to any of the www.win.ua.ac.be/* pages went to the web server HSWIS, which then -- if necessary -- talked to the database server HMACS for information retrieval. As you can imagine, Drupal takes a lot of database queries, and that massively slowed down any connection, particularly the (non-cached) administration pages.

Now, things are going directly to HMACS, hence no need for MySQL queries over the network. Now the pages just flyyyy...

Well, not entirely. If you look at the figures of PHP Speed (ignore the warnings), then it still seems rather, uhm, suboptimal after all.

Still, a bit hurray for a smooth Drupal experience on win.ua.ac.be/* !
