I have a dedicated server with apache and postgres, the problem is that the server goes down for a few minutes every once in a while and then is up again without taking any measures. it has linux 9 and company email is also on the same server. I have no idea why it slows down and gets offline and online.
I would really appreciate any help in this matter.
Yes that can be the case, but at this point we dont have much traffic on the server and we dont have more that 80 connection per day. can it be the case that the server goes in the sleep mode when not accesed for a while......its a brand new IBM server,
well ill do that, one more thing.., my postgres dosent release the connection, as the php pages are not releasing the connection, so because of this, there are large number of idle postgres connection as the time goes, i restart postgres every evening and give it 128 bit connection limit. can this idle connections cause the server to stop responding,
In anycase do you have any way i can stop this from happening, I have no idea how to make postgres and php release the connection once the user moves to new page....
