Project Description:
Hi Miki,
Keyword searching lead me to your profile.
We are in beta stages of a web app [url removed, login to view]
We are currently running this on a linux server hosted on amazon awc.
We would like a professional to look over the server for security, speed, best practices etc. we host mysql locally machine and I feel it could possibly be better running on amazons own db service, but these are all questions I am unqualified to answer. we have at times had "Mysql db has gone away" errors which causes things like mp3 encoding to stop working etc.

the site relies upon Gearman a job queuing server also.

As we are ready to start launching, I feel its best to get a sysadmin involved to look at the server for us and help us to feel more confident and of course to build a relationship for future issues, maintenance etc.
It would be great if there was also knowledge of zend/php etc if you were to find issues that were not huge fixes, so that you could repair them yourself, but lets talk about that later.
