We own and maintain our own Linux, red hat server. We have approx. 70 websites running on our server. Our memory usage is 674.3 MB out of [url removed, login to view] and our Disk space usage is 37.7 GB of 141.5 GB.
We installed the server approx. 6 years ago. Over the last year as our websites and traffic has grown our server isn't running as well as we believe it should. We have frequent very high-load times, have to restart mysql frequently due to sites not loading etc.
We are basically looking for a consultant to look at our server and give us suggestions as to what we can change, add, etc. to make our server run as optimal as possible. We are also looking into upgrading some of our software such as plesk, Mysql, php versions, etc. but are very hesitant for we don't want to crash our existing websites. We design websites and do programming but server maintenance is not our specialty. We are based in St. Louis and our server is co-located in rented rack space.
We would like some advice on how to optimize our server. Then after you have initially assisted us we could hire you on an as needed consulting basis.
Have you done this before? How many servers have you worked on? Please let me know if this is something you could help us with.
