How to bring server load down

to bring server load down you should never give out unlimited mysql databases and other features beacsue these does put alot of strain on the server, unless you balance it out with say only have 5 or so clients on one server etc.
either that or just give a client say 10 mysql databases beacsue to be honest no one needs unlimited, even though we offer it may change our plans soon :P

1. Also check is any cgi scripts use more cpu
2. Check photo gallery script.
3. MySql Databases
4. Some times you might get attack.

I actually tweaked the MYSQL DB conf file and Apache file and I have about 55 users on our 2 servers and they haven't redlined yet. And that's with unlimited MySQL DB's. One thing to keep in mind if that when someone says that they offer unlimited MySQL DB's, it's mainly a marketing ploy as no one is probably going to us more than 3-7 on any given account. I would definitely check to see what your clients are running. If they are running alot of CGI scripts, multiple bulletin boards and chat rooms....even webmail scripts like HiveMail, which we specialize in hosting, can bring a server down if it's not installed and configured properly.

Something else to check is how many hacks or extras those forums have installed. Had a client at one time who had a forum with about 100 members and no more than 15 on at a time who had about 25 hacks and extras installed on an invision board that would bring the server load up real high.

Did your server provider install X Windows for you? Some *intelligent* provider will install everything for you. But for my case, I wouldn't recommend installing X Windows as it consumes more resources.
Use this line to check it:
rpm -qa|grep XFree86
There should be a list of rpms. If you can see xxx-fonts, I would suggest you look for an admin to remove X Windows for you.

Installing mmcache helps a lot. It really works as they describe it on their website:
