I would love to do that , except the cost involved means that I would be going backwards every month, the current server incom wont cover it until I get more clients
Now that i have limited the smtp to 4 and 1, the memory is holding at 450 mb, and is stable.
However, when traffic levels rise tomorrow (eg monday mid-morning) what effect would this have on users? will they see apparent intermittent server errors /timeouts when there are no slots free?
When I first set the limits, qmail was intermittently showing as not running in Plesk, but would restart ok, now it is showing as permanently not running, and wont restart ( in plesk) even tho it IS actaully running and mail is being sent. I am thinking that for some reason that Qmail has for some reason become totally ***ed and needs a reinstall from scratch perhaps.
Advice as to what packages to remove ( and in what order if important) and re-install to do this would be greatly appreciated., expecially any tips on not losing current settings, or what conf files would be needing to backed up at least , so that I can more easily return things back to normal. ( smtp_psa being one such file,)..
I recall losing all individual spam level settings once when i reinstalled SA, and it was a time consuming pain manually setting them all up again in plesk, any tips to avoid such a mishap would be great.
