I noticed in cpanel that server load over 1.0 sometimes and that causes my website to take a long time to respond!!
I am wondering now what to do. Should I limit access to my website through .htaccess when the server load gets high, or is there better advice?
My website is running php scripts and I have about 1000 visitors per day.
I did some script profiling and I saw that it uses about 35 mysql query for main page and for others sometimes gets over 50 mysql queries.
