Hello,

We are a starting webdesign company and have our own VPS server for some months now. But the server is getting slow everyday, i tried looking for solutions in these forums but couldnt get a straight solution.

Some facts :
The server is usually fast again after a gracefull server reboot and a MYSQL restart ( mysql wont work after the reboot? )
There is a lot of spam mail going to mailboxes since the start of this server ( didnt have that problem before )
A customer has had a spamattack (?) since saturday where hes getting emails from [email protected] and mailer daemons every minute. I tried stopping it somehow but I couldnt find a real solution.

Any help would be appreciated !

This is our server info :

Your facts list holds no real details. In that users cPanel > Mail section > Default Address, whats this set to?

You might want to look into hiring a qualified System Administrator to get you going in the right direction. You can find a list here if you're interested:
Sys Admin Services | cPanel App Catalog
Thanks.

I contacted some companies and will update this thread if I have found a solution for our problems.
