  • How many rows in table 'invoice' with affid=654248? I guess not many. How many rows in table 'bill' with desctype=0? I guess a lot. If I guessed right you need an index on 'invoice.affid'. Once you add it mysql's query optimizer will switch order in which it does query. Right now it tries to find all records in table 'bill' with desctype=0 and then it joins result with table 'invoice'. This is slooooooooooow because of too many matching records in table 'bill'.

    On second thought you probably should have mu

    • Why the multi-column index? (if you see my response above, the index on affid was enough to solve this). The multi-column index on affid and commpaid generates the following:
