slow webserver when many users are online
Posted on 2004-09-02
Hi i have an image displaying page.
I got two dedicated servers with default plesk installation on both.
in one i installed a virtual host thru plesk (server 1) with the php files in it.
in the other one i installed another virtual host (with a fake domain name)and added a database(also thru plesk), so server 1 can use that database.
Im a neewbie in linux/apache, and that was the only way i could set up my site for it to work.
Now, The problem is that when there are more than about 60 users online the page takes minimal 60 seconds to load.. thats pretty much.
When using opera webbrowser you can see how the client comunicates with the server, there i can see that sending the request to the webserver takes about 40 seconds..
also i have added another virtual host in server 1 that got nothing to do with the one im having problems with, but i yust added this here to let you know that when entering that domain even though the other page is slow this one downloas in seconds. (exact same php script)
Is there anything i can do in the apache configuratuion to solve this problem?
server1 (dual 2.8ghz 500mb ram) plesk 6
server2 (2.8 ghz 1000mb ram) plesk 7
