Server keeps needing rebooting

I am having issues with a client site. It keeps slowing to a halt and we are having to reboot the server every day. The only application we have on there besides static html files is Magento.

We contacted the host and they said that Magento was causing a high MySQL usage. What could we do to lower this?

Thanks!

Probably very little - except find a hosting plan that understands Magento’s requirements. Lots of discussion about Magento-optimized host around these forums…

Post a few more details if you wouldn’t mind.

Is it a shared hosting environment?
If so, you obviously are limited by what your host is prepared to do for you.

If it is a VPS or dedicated (or you have access to apache/php/mysql)
You need to look into why you are having to reboot the system daily. Begin by looking at the obvious, post the output of

# top
# free -m

This should give an insight into the load on the server.

Failing that, (insert shameless advert here), get in touch with us for some specialised Magento hosting.
