Can anyone recommend a good company or someone that would be able to optimize Apache and MySQL on my server? I've slightly configured Apache so that it works well with my server so I'm mainly looking for someone to optimize MySQL (since it's using a lot of cpu).
The server load is pretty high so I'm hoping to reduce it before having to upgrade to a new server.
Hmm I'm aware that there are server management companies which also offer optimization, but I was wondering if there is a company which offers a package just to optimize your server (instead of paying monthly and making one support ticket).
You might want to Try SeeksAdmin - we use them with no problems at all *touches wood*. They Secured and optimized our server and its running very well with no issues very quick and reliable and carry out the job fully. No problems 2 thumbs up =)
If you need somthing specific speak to Tris (he is on the WHT forums i think his username is TR TRIS or somthing like that) he can drop you a PM with some more details i guess?
Thanks very much for your help guys. layer0 has actually contacted me and has been helping me a great deal with tweaking the server so I think I'm sorted for now. However I'll check out your recommendations.
