We have purchased a 20 Gb and 512 MB ram box from rackspace. We have installed apache2, php5 and mysql to run a website (shopping site). The problem from last 4 days is that after some requests the apache process are multiplying and the server is coming to halt (not responding). To test the number of requests we tried
siege -c25 -t1M www.styleos.com and after 10 request we get
Connection time out .
Can anyone tell whats the problem.
