    Guys, this is urgent lol.

    I have a VPS, 3GB of RAM and a 3GHz CPU.

    It keeps crashing due to high load, the sites on it are getting around 100 UV per day (only new sites) and it has about 4 sites.

    Each site is running WP with about 15-20 plugins. I have WP Super Cache and WP Minify enabled.

    Any ideas guys/girls?

    Thanks
    Adam

    What OS, are you sure it is the stats that you have, and what does your provider say? They might have oversold the server.

    Well host is w00servers, running CentOS 5.5, CPanel/WHM, and Linux.

    How can I tell if they have over sold the server?

    Cheers

    I did my small research for you and I found the way to make it working.

    Open new support ticket, and tell them you need more resources than what you get now, and if they can move your VPS to high performance optimized dedicated.

    They will do this for free and you will get much more resources, which means no overselling.

    Good luck!

    But I don't see how I can need a dedi with 500 UV per day on a few WP sites?

    You dont need Dedi, you dont understand.

    Ask them to move your VPS to highly optimized machine. 99% of companies are overselling resources, and so they are on your machine.
    Ask them to move you to optimize machine where they do not oversell.
    Of course do not use word oversell, just say you heard they can move you to optimized machine.
    You will pay nothing.

    Ahh, ok, I have the server running again, and the load seems to be ok, but I will ask them to move me to an optmized server tomorrow.

    Thanks!
