I'm wondering if you reduce the memory footprint of the SQL engine if that would help, but really 512 MB sounds too low for that setup.

What i think 512 MB Ram is not enough for web server and sql.
You should think of upgrading the same.

Regarding .NET error please check

my hosting is VPS windows server 2003 does the hot fix apply for it?
what are the limits i should put for the memory

by the way when i was hosting my site on their shared hosting i didnt face any problem at all
Please advance
always memory usage for w3wp.exe is almost eating all the memory
but for cpu usage is very low
yes, windows will utilize (if possible) all the memory available to it..
I cant give you an exact figure in regards to memory allocation, as it may affect timeouts if too low and will be dependent on the size of the DB and its configuration. I'd start with 128 MB and experiment from there, but I feel your time is waisted on a VPS with only that much memory.

What was your shared hosting servers assets? esp memory..
And I doubt they had SQL + IIS on the same box..

And you say your CPU is very low, but I think that is because it is not utilized at all, and breaks easily. Have you done any load testing?

i think i should be moving from VPS to another Dedicated Server ,i review my code and it seems debug directive was enabled on the web.config ,also i was only closing the database connection but not Disposing them which i feel it may cause problems i will deploy my site and check if problem goes
Thanks all
