Hi Illori, thank you for your reply
I am on a VPS with Hosting.com. here is my Status.php... http://njsaltwaterfisherman.com/forums/status.php
I own a pretty popular Fishing Web Site, and at the peek times we are having issues with legacy. I have been told I am out growing my VPS by them and I need to upgrade to a Cloud. But the cost different is Huge and I can't afford that added expense at the moment. I see more than 100 actually users on at one time.. but with the Spiders and Bots. it may hit 200.
Also been trying to understand the robot.txt file and trying and slow down the spiders and bots but it's doesn't seem to be working.
Can they.... the bots hurt my max connections.
Since I'm on a VPS They don't provide support. but they are good people and help me anyway they can.. One of thier techs goes beyond support for me..
She said she could tune apache for the max guest. but was afraid it will take away from my resources when it starting hitting the higher values..
I was hoping the problem was with the bots and spiders..
your opinion and direction would be greatly appreciated..
