Description ShTiRLiC 2006-11-01 23:39:47 UTC
When I install MediaWiki with Russian language it works very slow (on P-500 pages are 
loaded in 20-30 seconds or doesn't load at all because of exceeding max. execution time) 
but when I install it with English language pages are loaded pretty fast (2-4 seconds).

That's a pretty slow old computer; slowness is not surprising. Ensure that:

1) You don't have some generic problem with load, http configuration etc.
2) You have a PHP opcode cache installed (APC etc) <- DO THIS!
3) PHP's mbstring extension is enabled

Using memcached instead of the internal db can provide a very small speed boost on a small 
site as well; assuming you have enough memory to run things of course.

Consider also installing the ICU-based Unicode normalization extension which may help with 
edit submissions:

Thank you a lot, enabling mbstring helped!
