Allright, i bought a dedicated server (1.8 ghz celeron, 512 ram). Everything is fine for the 1st month untill saturday. Every thing is slowed. It takes like 5 minutes to access to my site (a lot faster before). On my server, i run 2 sites, about 50 000 pages views per day. My FTP is slow, my mySQL, my HTTPD, my SMTP and POP. Could anyone help me? I don't know what to do
It is not abnormal to have more apache processes than you have sites. I would try checking the load again when your server is running slow. Run top and press "P" to see what is using the most CPU time.
Alright, HUGE slow down today. 5 minutes ago, the server was going at 4 mbps (outbound) and 150 kb/sec (inbound). I stopped httpd (apache) for 30 seconds, and all the other services (mail, ftp, shell) are all going faster. Before i stopped apache, i was uploading at 5 kb/sec on my ftp and when i stopped it, i went to 40 kb/sec (the max i can do with my connection). Now that i restarted my apache, i'm uploading at 10 kb/sec.
With shell, i can see that httpd is using 8.1% CPU, mysqld 3.3. The rest are all lower than 0.3.
On my server, i'm proposing downloads for a game (mods, tools, patch, etc...) would it help if i put them on ftp instead of apache?
