All sites slow

Hello, I am on “highland” server and for the 4th time in as many weeks everything is slow again

I have emailed support, and I guess they will fix it within a few hours, but why oh why does it keep on happening, I used to love dreamhost until they moved me to a different server, now get problems every week :frowning:

I would not mind paying more (even double) if they could sort things out, would VPN be a better option? I cant face transferring everything to a different host.

oh an example of a site loading slow is

I’ve been running really slow again for a few days, and now my site has gone down completely. Seems to be almost constant these days.

It might be a problem with the server. Let DH support know and request to move to a better server if necessary.

Good luck!

VPS. The N is for network (the S is for Server). They’re actually different things, and can confuse everyone. :slight_smile:

One thing you can do to help yourself is change your PHP from 5.2 to 5.3 (it uses less memory). You can also ask we move you to a different server if you think this one is bad.
