-------- Recommendations -----------------------------------------------------
General recommendations:
    Run OPTIMIZE TABLE to defragment tables for better performance
    Reduce your overall MySQL memory footprint for system stability
    Increasing the query_cache size over 128M may reduce performance
    Adjust your join queries to always utilize indexes
    Temporary table size is already large - reduce result set size
    Reduce your SELECT DISTINCT queries without LIMIT clauses
Variables to adjust:
  *** MySQL's maximum memory usage is dangerously high ***
  *** Add RAM before increasing MySQL buffer variables ***
    query_cache_size (> 512M) [see warning above]
    join_buffer_size (> 512.0M, or always use indexes with joins)
    innodb_buffer_pool_size (>= 3G)
I don't know how to get the contents of my.cnf. What do you suggest ?

Hello :)

You will need to access SSH as root and use a command such as "cat". EX:

cat /etc/my.cnf
Thank you.
