|My server is very slow, High CPU, High Apache load....Please help.
I got a new server and i had setup a script on it.
No server tweaks has been done.
I run a filehosting site so it gets very slow when traffic is high.
Here is some info:
I dont know much about server managment...
Can someone tell me how to fix this so server doesnt go slow?

|What was the script you installed , perhaps there is something wrong with the code that is causing the issue , what was the load prior to the install of the script?

|Well the load was normal when the site had less traffic, as the traffic grew the site became slow and slow.

|You should look for a server management company to look into your configuration , and offer up some possible tweaks , or you may need to upgrade your physical hardware.

|I have already paid for one but its going to take 24hrs for them to setup.
In mean time I want to know on how i can fix this issue temporarily.

|It appears two-part. The script appears to require high CPU in itself. The other piece is the tweaking of Apache.
I'd recompile with Apache mod_fcgid/suexec. You can tweak fcgi and set ulimits based on the script/user, timeouts, etc. This would be the best bet for this situation. I'd also highly recommend yo go with a good server management provider.
I'm sure someone is going to jump on the Litespeed boat and make a recommendation soon. Anyway, I don't recommend Litespeed but that is an option. The most feasible option is to use a reverse proxy on the front-end to cut the load down, such as nginx/lighty. This would make a huge difference in the utilization you're seeing.

|It's not a good idea to use Apache to run file hosting. You should switch to a lightweight webserver.
