    Session Maxlifetime difference apparently, I have a question.

    Ok so I have my maxlifetime value set in WHM. This affects all of my sites hosted on my VPS. However, I have one site that I'm running and for some reason, the session doesn't seem to be timing out. I don't have anything special set in the .htaccess or anything. And it's virtually the same code...

    Hi CPU usages showing for MySQL in WHM

    Hey everyone, I've been monitoring my server today and I've seen MySQL Pid slowly go up to about 20.4 %. What's weird is that even when the site load dropped back down to around 1 or 2, the amount of CPU MySQL is using is sticking to 20.4 %. Currently both of my sites are snappy and responding...

    KnownHost comes through for me again.

    Today I had a bit of a server crisis. My sites were coming to a crawl and pages that normally take half a second to load were taking up to 1 minute.

    Older VPS (VPS-XLca) plans vs new ones and performance

    Hello everyone. I'm currently on a VPS-XLca plan. One of my sites is getting pretty busy and I can notice the pages slowing down a bit. I'm getting ready to launch another site that will probably eventually be just as busy or maybe even more so. So I'm wondering if I should upgrade/switch now...

    Cron Daemon and chkrootkit emails nightly - do you use them?

    My mailbox is filling up fast with these nightly Cron Daemon reports and Daily chkrootkit reports. They are both massive emails with a boatload of content which would take forever to comb through. How do you handle these emails? Do you even view them on a daily basis? Do you just delete them...

    Remote DB access hostname vs. IP

    Hi everyone, I have a simple question for you. I use SQLyog for all of my remote database work. I love it. I notice that when I connect to my databases hosted on my VPS, I have to use the IP to connect. On my older shared hosting account I could use my domain to connect instead. As in...
