Project Description

I work on a wordpress site that's hosted on a virtual server on linode. Recently we upgraded the plan to a more powerful server, but since then it's been plagued with issues.

The first issue was, a few times per day the server would hang up and the website would become inaccessable until I restarted it from the linode control panel. I had a developer try and fix it and optimize the server so the site would run more effeciently. He adjusted some things in php-fpm, nginx, and mysql and also added a script to clear the memory every 4 hours.

Today the sites been getting FREQUENT database connection errors every few minutes that last around a minute. The site's inaccessible during this. The issue resolves itself every time, but keeps happening.

The web server runs on nginx, mysql, and php. and the site runs on wordpress.

Who can help me now? Thanks!
