    Hello guys..
    I have a very high traffic site, right now 2,500 live visitors and its breaking apart, either a 503 error or "Error establishing connection to database".
    So I am looking for someone very exper in Amazon AWS or DigitalOcean, so we can mount a Wordpress instance very well cached to the bones and the nginx very well configured to be able to handle 10,000 live visitors.
    Can someone help with this?
    I am using:
    Theme: Boombox
    Plugins:
    - ViralPress
    - SabaiDiscuss
    - Buddypress

    Thats it.. If someone has experience with this, please help.

    Thanks, I just messaged. I cannot decide if using DigitalOcean, Kyup, AWS, or Linode. Also maybe I can use Cloudways to set up easily, but they do not support HHVM.
    When can you assign 3-5 hours for doing the migration and configuration to try it on new server?
    Can we stress it using traffic simulator? We are gonna use nginx right?
    Talk to you on skype?

    It depends. Depending on the code, HHVM is going to be faster in some instances, and PHP7, in others. You can setup nginx to use HHVM, with PHP-FPM as a fall-back, if HHVM hiccups on a piece of code. A visitor would never see the error. But, none of that will amount to a hill of beans if you don't find out exactly what your bottleneck is. Since you're using SabaiDiscuss and BuddyPress, you'll need to put as much code as you can into an object cache. Page caching is okay for anonymous users, but is probably not what you want for logged in users as they'll be presented with stale data if you're not using an extremely low cache time.

    I found this video:

    Which explains how to setup AWS with EBS, EC2, S3, RDS, ElasticCache. Seems difficult but what do you think guys?

    That would work. I'm pretty sure there's some autoscaling tutorials out there as well where instances could be created/destroyed based on the load.

    With that is better than paying a big dedicated server or the stupid amount of WPEngine or others that charge with a limit of page views per month. IN result those will finish into bankrupcy for you if you have a big traffic site which doesnt cash out that amount every 1,000 visits.
