Hi suddenly all my wordpress websites and the virtualmin control panel slow right down and even to website error appearing. I checked the log for an example :
mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 31 seconds
I have therefore extended the php timeout for the domains and this has now helped but what is stumping me is why this has just happened all of a sudden. The memory usage and disk space if very low looking at the dials in virtualmin. I tried rebooting and this didnt help. I have debian with 8gb memory (only 1 gig in use) loads of space on hard drive too.
Maybe slow SQL server i’m thinking, anyway to check/speed up?
OK Im now wondering if Ive been hacked. The proFTP server will not start in virtual control panel, when I try command line with: proftpd it replies with:
warning: unable to determine IP address of ‘mywebsite.net’
Ive looked in the host file and there is the hostname but no IP address, should IP be in there next to hostname? I looked at the logs and there were 100’s of entries where tor.somthing trying to log in but failing with wrong un/pw .
