I have a website that I recently moved to a dedicated server. Before hand I had the website hosted with 2 other hosting companies (not dedicated).
I decided to go to a dedicated server because the website ran extremely slow or even went down due to traffic.
With the dedicated server I am having the same problem with the same amount of visitors online. This usually occurs with aprox 250 members online.
I know nothing about servers and have no idea how to cure this problem or if possibly it could be a setting in the server. However this is killing my website because new people are unable to register because of site coming down from traffic.
I have a client who has 3 to 4 websites. His websites are database driven mysql. When we transfered to a new server everything works. Then he requested a iconv and GD installations. Then it was installed. Now all of his sites is impossibly to view but its up. The rest of the clients are doing just fine. What do you think is the problem? we recompiled php several times already same thing.
For about the last two weeks I've had issues connecting with the website that I help run www.learnoutloud.com from my home connection which is Time Warner Cable Internet connection in Los Angeles. I'm on a Dell laptop Inspiron 6000 running Windows XP. I'm always able to connect to the site but what's happening is the page will get hung up on loading a single image usually and then it will take about a minute just to load that last image. And sometimes the page won't load at all, but all it takes usually is hitting the refresh button and the page loads instantly. I was hoping this issue would just go away, but it's been persistent after numerous restarts of our cable modem and switching from wireless to plugged in and so forth. And it's really only happening for our site and no others, which is just puzzling.
At our office on our DSL connection our site loads fine and we haven't had any customer complaints about the site loading slow like this. Our traffic numbers have stayed steady so I don't think it's a global problem connecting with our site. At home I conduct a trace route and it looks good:

Does anyone know what the heck is going on and how I can fix this?
i am trying to optimize my dedicated server to host one website (php-nuke platnuam 7.6v2b5 taking 1min to 1min 30secs to load). ive read the tutorials and it does not seem to make a difference no matter what i try. if one of you guys could kindly point out what could possibly be the problem i would be very greatful.
I have a VPS over at futurehosting, and I'm having some issues with my PHP/MySQL sites loading slowly after a few days of uptime. A restart of the various services (apache/mysql) fixes the issue, but I'd like the issue to not start in the first place.
I know very little of server administration (I'm still learning) so just let me know what info you need to see to do the troubleshooting and I'll get it to you.
Today, without any change on the server side my single running website on my server started running low. After checking the running processes I realised I have these 8 processes running with high cpu load something that didn't had before.

As you might know if you read my other thread I'm often looking for VPS servers (at the moment Linux only), based around the world.
This weeks challenge for me is a china/hong kong based VPS, nothing too fancy, its only going to be used for small websites and as a proxy service for when we run ranking reports for our SEO clients.
Requirements - English support if possible, although we do have some Chinese speakers in house. - 128mb ram, 2gb disk space, 20gb transfer/mo - CentOS 5 preferred, but any system with a working Yum or similar will do.
Budget up to €30 a month, but could go higher if i had to.
Payment -for various reasons we cannot use paypal at the moment, so even if its just paypal credit card processing they won't let us use it. This is something we are looking to solve but its not my dept so i'm stuck with it.
- We can pay by Visa Credit or Visa Debit cards, and if we really had to, bank transfer, but I'm told transfers to china are sometimes very tricky to get right.
I have had a look through the VPS offers forum but most of the china-related posts are from 2006 or so and so aren't relevant anymore.
This works on my site. But for some reason I still get the occasional IP's through.
I looked at my Lighttpd server-status and I have 600 connections from 3 different IPs that come from China.
I typically use ./route add -host 18.104.22.168 reject as the way to block them, but it changes from time to time. The Chinese are using 90mbps of bandwidth and I want it to stop as they must be directly hotlinking my content.
How to null route large blocks from China? Please note I want to keep Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
For my future Chinese Bonsai website I am considering several options for hosting and domain names. Until now I have a US and an Amsterdam hosting (English version in the US and the Dutch, French and German in Amsterdam).
As the Chinese version will be non-political I think I prefer to host it in mainland China. Does anyone here knows a good webhosting that is not too cheap? I need 100Mb and some GB's (I guess under 5GB should be ok) of bandwidth.
Furthermore, I am not sure what domain name to choose. I have 4 options:
1. the name in pinyin (normal text) .com 2. the name in pinyin .cn 3. the name in Chinese characters .com 3. the name in Chinese characters .cn
If I choose to take a .com, would it matter to have this domain name registered in the US? This is cheaper than in China I think; however, it is important to me that the website is seen by Baidu as 100% Chinese (does it matter where a domain name is registered?)
.CN - Domain names for China (irist.com), is now just $12.99
With China's recent accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) the economy there is taking great strides towards global accessibility. .cn offers registrants the protection of a well-established brand name in what is certain to become one of the most lucrative marketplaces in the world, and begin making inroads into the Chinese marketplace.
I currently live in China and as most businesses in China do, they host outside of China because of the severe requirements of hosting in China are time consuming to accomplish.
I am currently hosting with godaddy.com and have been happy with them until now. This is the 2nd time my site has been blocked because my site is on a server with a porn site. They switched to a different server once now they refuse to do it again. I also suggested they offer porn-free servers (I would be willing to pay more) but they refused.
Now, I noticed that even godaddy.com is blocked from China. I really think they are missing out on Many business opportunities in China by not offering porn-free servers.
I'm trying to get a full rack co-location services in China or Hong Kong. Co-location in Singapore is starting to get expensive... Per additional 1 Mbps cost about USD 150 onwards. It's not feasible for us anymore.
Anyone has any suggestions which countries is better? And from which IDC? So far Asia Netcom and China Telcom seems to be the better choice. No 2 tier suppliers, e.g. Pacific Internet, they get their co-location from the above too.
I've got 25 domains on a Virtuozzo/Plesk8.6/CentOS5 VPS. Each domain has one up-to-date install of WordPress, most have very little traffic (average 200mb per month), maybe 2 domains get 5-7gb traffic per month.
I monitor port 80 connections and rarely see more than 10 at a time. That should in my opinion be no problem at all for a VPS with 768mb guaranteed ram and 2.4ghz cpu. I've got 30gb hard drive spare too.
But.... about 8 or 10 times a day it grinds to a complete halt: server load at 500-1000%, sites timing out, plesk takes 3mins to load, often I can't even connect with SSH, and the plesk web server, apache
80 seconds sounds like a huge amount of time for a MySQL insert to me! Does anyone know if this is likely to be the cause of my trouble? Some problem with Plesk and the database? Or could it be something else?
If I type google.com in my address bar, it forwards me to www.google.com. This is not happening for my website right now. I think its a good idea to do this, since then search engines will have only 1 main URL for the website to index.
My question is:
How do I implement this? I think this may involve mucking with CNAME settings...
