Slow Performance in Nuke, etc
is anyone else's PHP-Nuke site running really slow? I have called Tech Support three times now, and all they can say is.... "Let me let an admin know"
What does that mean? The guy on the phone personally saw it running like crap on several of my sites. This is getting crazy because I am trying to run a business here as well as my clients.
Tech Support can not explain the issues at all!
Who else here is having slow performance issues and let us all share some ideas of what you might have done to speed up performance... otherwise I have to leave to another host and POWWEB laughs at me since I prepaid for 4 sites now.
Thanks in advance,
"POWWEB helps me create a dial-up speed world for my users, it's great!"

I have many of my clients' websites hosted on PowWeb and some elsewhere. Only one client is currently having php/mysql problems since January. Her website was programmed by someone else and he used some code that is a few years old. It could grow to be too big for PowWeb, so we may have to move it, but it worked fine for two years. It is frustrating that it no longer works and she does not want to spend more money.
Many other people have recently found their scripts no longer loading quickly or at all. Too many server-side processes cause the sites to load more slowly, but why would a site that worked suddenly stop? And this happened to many people using many different CMS scripts? You need to use another script, update your existing script or move to another web host.
Some people moved from PowWeb to another host, hoping that they would no longer have problems. Guess what? The problems started elsewhere. So now what? I guess that updating scripts or using another script is the answer. Like computers themselves, code can be outdated as the software is updated.
PHP-Nuke is often updated, but it is often the target of exploits. They may run slowly, because people are abusing the scripts. Try looking at other CMS hosted here and you may find one that works better. Be sure to protect your scripts as best you can (using .htaccess, chmod to more secure permissions, etc.).
Those sites affected during an attack or other problem are toasted and have to figure things out for themselves. Very frustrating. The upgrades should have been posted in advance, so people can prepare by backing up websites and databases and experimenting with other scripts. As for the attacks, they couldn't see them coming, but hopefully they can handle them much faster.
These problems do exist on other web hosts, so changing hosts don't solve the problems. I would like to catch attackers and send an electrical surge back to their computers. Let's save time and money and zap them with their hands in the cookie jar! (I guess this lousy weather is making me cranky.)
