Decrease cpanel server high load for popular web sites

It’s no secret that Cpanel servers are load-hungry when you move quite a large site on the server. There are quite a few things to do:

  1. server optimization
  2. daemon optimization
  3. disabling built-in stats processing software
  4. updating logfile processing

and much more. I suggest disabling built in automatic stats processing – awstats, analog and webalizer. You can quickly script to logrotate logs and do own stats processing. For folks who prefer awstats there is only ONE OPTION if you have a bandwidth and load hungry site – use -staticlinks option and generate static files with Awstats. This is the only solution.

If you have any other guys or friends on the server – disable web update for Awstats statistics option in the Cpanel admin control panel. If you have problems with optimization and your server high load, crashes for your Cpanel box – there are quite a few companies out there willing to help. Check out SharpAdmin.com, for example.
