Why is the database search so slow?

We have a database of over 30.000 questions, and the search is very slow. The version in use is 0.7.49 Do you have any suggestions to speed up things?

YAAAH , database will be very slow if you use sqlite3 database and database file size will be large، Askbot works fine with PostgreSQL database because Postgres is extremely capable of handling many tasks very efficiently. Support for concurrency is achieved without read locks thanks to the implementation of Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC), which also ensures the ACID compliance.
