I have looked around for an answer to this and did not find one. If I overlooked it please post the link and Ill go read that post.
I recently have had a full system failure with the hosting company I use. Long story short I had to switch from an 2003 server to a 2008 and since then I have been having trouble with some of the older sites.
It seems that almost every day between 8am-11am the worker process of the site will stop responding causing anyone trying to access the site just getting a white page with no text and it never stops trying to load it.
I am a programmer not a server guy and the company I host with no longer offers server help they just make sure the box turns on and wishes you luck.
I am able to find the Worker process section in iis 7.5 and the reason I think that is the issues is if i recycle the worker everything works again.
The website is an old asp classic site that at some point ill update but in the mean time I need it to work.
I turned on 32 bit app setting so the asp will actually run.
When the worker hangs up I can go in and see the current worker actions and there are 40+. Beyond that I don't know how to go about finding the problem or setting up the server so it just dose not lock up.
Any help would be appreciated. I wish I had the cash to pay a server guy to just go though and make it all good but this has been a rough year.
Anyone have any ideas on what could cause this type of issue? I am sure there is probably a simple way to see whats going on but like I said not a server guy I am just happy I got it to this point.
