We have a high traffic website, with about 5+ million hits per day. What's the most recommended settings / parameters for; http://www.litespeedtech.com/php-litespeed-sapi.html Currently we have; PHP_LSAPI_MAX_REQUESTS=50000 PHP_LSAPI_CHILDREN=50 LSAPI_MAX_IDLE_CHILDREN=60 And also; Max Connections = 50 MySQL is optimized via my.cnf and using LSWS cache. The server load is very high and website keeps on hanging. When we change; PHP_LSAPI_CHILDREN=200 website works, but server load gets worse. When we check under our WHM/Cpanel -> Show MySQL Processes We notice database connections for this site are so many and in sleep mode, then under time column appears to stay there for long. This started last week therefore believe it's a PHP scripting issue on this site. However, I'm wondering from the server side what settings above can we use to help database connections not stay open endlessly? And also best figures for parameters above that handle high traffic sites well? Or is there anyone with high traffic sites? What parameters are you using?
