Till or anyone
I'm in a real bind now. One of my web sites, the same one I was talking about here, is running a contest. She gets an increase in traffic, but not out of what I would expect. The as the traffic increases, The server goes crazy. The CPU and memory both go off the scale, and even top show load averages into the 100s!
I have tried to fine tune the my.cnf and apache2.conf but it isn't helping. I have 1.5GB of RAM on this machine running Ubuntu with the server on a xen virtual machine. The processor is a core duo Pentium and the operating system is installed as 64bit. Any help would be appreciated.
