server load issues ?

Post by abhishek1711 » Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:32 am

i shifted to future hosting VPS, have two websites hosted - IbsRocks.com and MbaNaukri.com - none of them have high traffic as such, but today my VPS is going down repeatedly and this is what the customer support says
We have checked your server. Please see the load average and process list given below:

The value 4.42 was the CPU load average at the time. A normal load should be below 1.00. I could see that Apache service is causing high load in your server.
So you can tweak Apache in order to reduce the CPU load. Please check and let us know if you need any further assistance.

Your customer support has not provided any data that links the issue to phpBB. We really cannot help you troubleshoot your Apache config, as this is a phpBB support forum. :)
