Adjust your join queries to always utilize indexes
Increase table_cache gradually to avoid file descriptor limits
Variables to adjust:
*** MySQL's maximum memory usage is dangerously high ***
*** Add RAM before increasing MySQL buffer variables ***
query_cache_size (> 32M)
join_buffer_size (> 1.0M, or always use indexes with joins)
table_cache (> 2048)
