Still Dealing with Some Web Hosting Issues

This post contains affiliate links.

I am still struggling with some issues with my new VPS hosting from MyHosting and working to iron out the details and figure out how to solve the problems.  My latest issue was when trying to setup Amazon S3 for my JustinGermino.com blog and just trying to sync files with the W3 Total Cache plugin caused the entire VPS to go down.

In addition my wife noticed she can recreate this issue sometimes when uploading images to her blog site.  There seems to be some issue with # of connections or something that keeps the VPS unstable.

I am working with the MyHosting tech guy who brought me in and helped tune things previously to see if we can increase stability and figure out how to resolve these issues.  I checked online and couldn’t find anything at all with Google searches even closely related to my issues and since my entire VPS collapses when I test this I can’t really watch logs or performance in real time since all my connections get disconnected.

In the meantime, I may be having some random outages on my Poetry, Personal blogs until we get this figured out and resolved.
