The problem/s concerning funding I have posted on before with relevant suggestions. I had no idea that some individuals were “financing” the situation from their own pocket until I read it today. Maybe I went over the top a bit so I apologise.
I would start of by monitoring all activity using port 3049, as there are known vulnerabilities with this port and your server software, i.e. other non-authorised users/hackers. This can slow down or even lock a site (so I am told) from within i.e. outgoing packets. Please post the hardware specifications used and measured memory leakage at full load.
Configuration (software): -
Apache/1.3.22 (Unix) (Red-Hat/Linux) mod_ssl/2.8.5 OpenSSL/0.9.6b DAV/1.0.2 PHP/4.1.2 mod_perl/1.26 on Linux. I have passed this information to my brother who is an expert in this field.
I am not an expert but I know people who are so maybe they can assist, either way it will cost nothing. Hope this may be of assistance. Sooooooooory for the flame.
He also says that some of the above viruses won’t come fully back to life without emails going in/out, but with only my description and the fact that he is already overburdened with work and that as he is coming over here (my place) he will look at the problem then if still unresolved (about two weeks).
“Below your Avatar you have put, " NTFS Devotee" Prove it.” I have never input any text or graphic. This was done by the system itself (clue).
There is no doubt in my mind that things have speeded up on my 56k connection (page loading in particular) at least. I doubt however that a single problem was to blame as over the years I’ve seen this sort of problem before which usually cascades to many other possibly hidden problems within the operating environment that can be a nightmare to sort. I feel sorry for all those involved in the solution to this issue and hope that it can be resolved without too much pain. Good luck.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
