@toreskev exactly its not virtualmin issue - should be asked somewhere else like wordpress or php forums. anyway all issues are welcome here and speaking as web dev my self I do not think its something malicious running out there on him, its just he uses OS which can break with package installed - no one cares how he did install it - I was not saying anything about that and you pointed right. What I said to op and pointed clear was its risky business and I did not care what and how, I said his os should not run this version as this will and could lead to issues like he is experiencing.
Please you have to look at the issue as web dev, previous versions worked well as no issues mentioned, site is heavy loaded from his comment means site is popular - new package or upgrade of ppa or package caused issue suddenly - means nothing malicious but it could be but first I would look at log files instead of htop ot top - sql loaded badly does not mean something malicious, it could be his code is failing him.
Without log file and supplied informations - I would not even advice to him to have poo in morning after coffee and cigy. He runs os and that os does not support the version he want to run. Period = unstable = asking for troubles. if he must have php which is not supported by his os its all totally fine and cool - he might go with ubuntu os or any other beeding edge os
- this advice is valid but on server which is stable - it would take him days to solve this even to me as devops it would take me couple of hours - and I can tell you - he would go no where. I like discussion about this but I think he would be better of on his os to use supported version of things he runs unless one know what he is doing…
- my point is to save him from days of useless work, without results and halt any more pointless questions around, man we live once and time is important.
- unstable = unstable = troubles
edit = debian unstable is stable we all know that but to use packages from debian unstable you have to install your system as unstable. Rest of os-es when they said unstable I end up in troubles… so that’s why unstable is bad even for me (running debian everywhere).
