I've tried to upgrade to the latest versions of php a couple of times but every time I do I get much much higher loads.
The server load is usually around 0.25 to 0.5 but when I upgrade php to 5.3 (dso). I've tried a couple versions the load averages around 1.5 to 2.5 and gets lots of spikes that slow things down to the level that I get complaints. With 5.2.17 (dso) I get virtually no load issues at all. Does anyone have any ideas what might casue this?
The server details are below
WHM 11.32.3 (build 21)
REDHAT Enterprise 5.8 i686 standard
