Thanks guys...

Today, also while I was sleeping, either the web server or database server went down. This time, the techs at the hosting company detected the problem, logged in, and restarted everything perfectly - fantastic.

So now at least we know when things do need restarting and I am asleep / away, they will be restarted correctly.

As for why the server went down in the first place - I'm not sure. Certainly up until that point, things were going very well. I'm pleased to announce that other than these periods of undetermined total downtime, the server load is at record lows and pages being served faster than ever which is great news.

Hi Jason, Is it just the site that is going down or the whole server? I've been in situations in the past where major changes were made, and the problem turned out to be completely unrelated and mere co-incidence, makes troubleshooting hard as you are always looking at the recent changes for the cause!!

Tony.

It's just Apache, not the whole server. Doesn't look like anything major at this stage.

ok did we just have another glitch, or was it my Internet? I had a post time out and it went through fine when I tried again.

An intended glitch. I'm updating mod_pagespeed, the new version isn't backwards compatible with the old configuration file format, had to take the web server down for a minute.

I've now upgraded mod_pagespeed - we were using quite an old version before and are now on the current version. It might optimize some things differently out of the box so if you experience any strange behavior (eg: images not showing up, javascript not working, etc) please let me know.

I believe I just found the culprit - a badly written query - both nights the system crashed at exactly the same time which is when this query is being automatically run (actually it just locked up the database, causing a massive backlog of requests). I'm 99% sure that was the problem both yesterday and today.

I believe not dependable of my ISP , because I experienced the same in last few days , using two completely independent ISPs
