  - Linux Powerline 2200 + cPanel
  - Monthly Transfer: 700 GB
  - Primary Hard Drive : 80 GB
  - IP Space: 1 IP Address
  - Operating System: RedHat 9.0
  - cPanel 6.0: Unlimited Domain License
  - Processor: Athlon XP 2200

You're kidding right?  It's just one server, and it runs simplemachines.org and yabbse.org (the second has caused quite it's share of problems.)

Get big?  Aren't they the one who had "check every time it's displayed" on that caused so much trouble?  I hope they don't have it on again.  How many queries per second do you get?  Common load averages?  MySQL and PHP versions?  Query caching enabled, I hope?

Our server is worse.  I'm not at all sure, but I'm pretty sure of the CPU and ram...

Red Hat Linux + cPanel
80 gig hard drive (not sure, not a big deal anyway.)
Just one IP, I'm pretty sure.
I think it's Red Hat 8.
No idea what version of cPanel.
Celeron 1700.
512 megs ram.

So, as you can see, your server should be plenty for their forum, even with so many members.  I assume it's dedicated, though... is it?

yup. this is the same site getbig.com that did have that "check everytime" enabled, though it hasnt been checked  since.  It is shared on my dedicated server, my other clients are extremely small and dont cause any load.

I have seen anywhere from 7 to 40 queries per second
My common load is around 1.0 but goes up  to 50.0 sometimes- usually everything fails after that.

of course when i go to check the php version, i cant access my server. i think it is a pretty recent, if not the newest version.

Query caching enabled? is that under admin?, ill check when my server is back up.

I dont know, im stumpped. if you can take a look at it, i can pm you my server info and forum info.

Thanks!

php 4.3.9
and mysql 4.0.22

boogiedown:
my mem usuage for the server has also been hi lately

Memory Used   84.9 %

and a few times i would have to repair the mysql db for that forum, it would affect all other sites and not allow it to connect.

That's horrible!  The load averages here only go up to 4.x when sending lots of emails, otherwise they stay under 0.5.

This is a MySQL server setting; sorry, I had thought you were someone else with your wording, but now I think I remember talking with you.  Anyway, query caching should be enabled - you can find out by going into phpMyAdmin, looking at "server variables", and searching that page for "caching" or "cache".

As for the memory usage, that's normal.  In fact, even higher usage wouldn't be bad; Linux is designed to use all your server's memory to its fullest extent.
