    Would Wp super cache do this, or is there another one that I can use.

    They are autoblogs on one db.

    Thanks

    Did you find that it made a big difference?

    My DB is responsible for 90% of load on there DB server. :(

    WP-Super Cache can make a huge difference - by both reducing your database load and decreasing the load time of your pages. Not only will this help your server, it will mean faster load times for the people coming to your site. And Google gives your sites better SERP rankings if you have shorter page load times.

    Definitely worth the try. I use it on every WP blog I have.

    is it hard to install and setup?

    Are there any settings that I need to setup a specific way?

    Thanks again.

    WPSupercache is also gonna load your cpu and take some memory.
    If you are trying to do it to stay on shared i would start looking for a vps.
    I am in the same shoes and am looking for the one.
    Alternatively if you are on VPS you need to increase php memory in php config file or email support and tell them to do so. That will eliminate db overload problems

    Benny this is really stressing me out.

    So hosting like bluehost and hostmonster wouldn't be good enough?

    is it the amount of plugins that I have per blog about 22 or is it the amount of post from wp robot, and last but not least the traffic?

    Time to get yourself a dedicated server, or split your blogs into multiple databases so you can figure out which blogs are causing the load, and you can move a single blog to a new host instead of all of them.
