#4729 closed bug (fixed)

haiku-files.org is snappy, but haiku-files.org/raw, /vmware, /cd are not

Description

http://haiku-files.org responds very quickly while http://haiku-files.org/raw/, http://haiku-files.org/vmware/ and http://haiku-files.org/cd/ do not.

Two possible clues as to what's going on (as picked up on IRC):

"org/ is pure html, raw/, cd/, vmware/ are php"
"it enumerates the whole dir and tries to match filetypes to thumbs and such"

The site is using a very poorly done PHP script that refills a MySQL database (with each visit) just for sorting and filtering the entries. I've already complained about this since forever. Patches welcome!

We could just use the (styled) output of Apache's mod_autoindex (see http://recurser.com/articles/2008/12/29/styling-apache-directory-listings-with-mod_autoindex/ for an explanation). I think Canonical uses it at http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.04/ for example.

Alternatively, we could use a simple PHP Directory listing script like http://www.evoluted.net/community/code/directorylisting.php

I would prefer the first one, as it is much faster (at least in theory)...

Done. Reworked them, stripped unneeded stuff, sort using PHP, reformat to have a coding style, style the output as well, simplified. Should perform reasonably now.
