WordCamp Session:

From Shared to VPS. Scaling up for traffic and utilization.

Session Description:

What to consider about the VPS host you choose. Will you be able to vertically scale up and down in your new VPS hosting environment? Can you scale CPU and RAM without changing disk space so you can scale back? Don’t forget costs and bandwidth considerations. What if the site is too large for common popular migration tools? Learn how to use linux and mysql commands to move your website from one server to another. What are some basic linux commands you need to know and how to read the output to have a pulse on the health of your server. Don’t just rely on the graphs, because with great power comes great responsibility. I will show how to check for free memory, cpu, disk, etc. I will show you how to dig deeper into the mystery that is your web server.
