    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on optimizing a server for a one domain dedicated box. We have a dual xeon server with 4gb of ram. The server is always only using 8.6% of memory and the site is heavy on database queries. I am thinking that cpanel will limit each site, for the reasoning of cpanel being able to host multiple websites. But we don't have multiple websites. So does anyone have any ideas on maximizing cpanel for this one domain and letting it use the power in-which it has. We get over 3million clicks a month and use around 18gb of bandwidth per day. The database size MySQL Disk Space 183.15 Megabytes.

    Some of things I want to accomplish.

    1. Increase MySQL speed, and memory usage.
    2. Increase the per user allocated kbps speed. It seems like this is limited. I would like to increase this a bit.
    3. See the memory usage to be around 65% of the total amount of ram.

    Does anyone have any ideas on this? Your help is greatly appreciated. I looked on other forums but nothing was really for this issue.

    Typically, the limiting factor in situations such as this is disk IO, not memory. Have you checked disk IO consumption?

    Additionally, I am not aware of any native limitation by cPanel/WHM that throttles local MySQL connections.
