I use Adminer in this cases, it is a very small file but better than PhpMyAdmin
You download, upload, repair, edit and much more with this program.
Thanks. I'll check it out. I'm on that site now. It just downloads a php file but has no instructions on how to use it. Where are the instructions?
How is this program better than phpmyadmin? Is its repair function any better? That's the major thing I need. Can it fix deeper issues?
Still no one knows why our server keeps crashing. Is the server defective? If so they don't acknowledge it. Bluehost doesn't like to acknowledge any blame of course. They prefer to pass it on to the websites. But my website and forum do not do anything that would cause a server crash. Our traffic hasn't gone up much. We only get 2000 to 2500 visitors a day. That's not enough to crash a server. So I don't know what's going on. My site has been running for 10 years since 2007, and it doesn't usually crash.
The tech support at Bluehost cannot find the cause. They only say that the server logs say that the server was overloaded, but cannot determine the cause.
So no one knows what's going on. Any suggestions? Is this a hacker attack?
I think I might have to move back to shared hosting. Shared hosting is cheaper, doesn't crash as much as VPS hosting, and has unlimited space and bandwidth, whereas VPS only limits you to 30 GB. So VPS sucks and is unnecessary and doesn't provide any advantages and costs more too, and seems to have unstable servers as well. Why does anyone need a VPS then? I don't get it. I was told that shared hosting should be enough for a site of this size and traffic. So it makes more sense and costs less too. Plus VPS is a form of shared hosting anyway, it only creates a virtual server for you, but technically you still share resources with other VPS sites on the same server.
What do you all think?
