Our current server has been up non-stop for exactly a year. Over the last few weeks we had some slow loads and site errors, especially in blog comments. We did some scheduled maintenance a few hours ago, and the site was offline for a few minutes here and there.
The WordPress backend is up to full speed again. Comments seem to be faster, but we’re still not satisfied. We’re going to disable the Akismet spam filter and try some alternatives.
- System is updated from Debian 6.0.3 to latest stable release 6.0.6 and rebooted
- New version of eaccelerator is compiled for updated PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze14
- Changed value ;suhosin.get.max_value_length = 1024 under /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini to solve errors related to piwik (traffic statistics software)
Please let us know how it’s working for you!
