So I have run into some Session Expired problems with my users and I was wonder what machine I would have to use in order to avoid these types of errors.

Currently I have a Virtual Dedicated Server at godaddy.com that has a Pentium Xeon Processor, with 512 MB of RAM running windows Server 2003. I also run SQLExpress 2005 on it. Seesm like if I get 20 hits a day the server memory will over load.

I set the IIS settings so that I could recycle the worker process, but all this does is kill the user session.

Do any of you want to share your specs or at least inform me what would a decent server be for running VPASP with let's say 4,000 unique visitors a month?

Thanks,

Joe

I was on the VPS and quite frankly it was not really up to spec and had many conversations with Webfusion on this matter. Even after many tweeks of the Recycling Process settings it still bombed out every now and again.

I was told (by Webfusion) that i should consider SharedHosting Package instead of the VPS.

Dont know if this helps?

The exact question I was going to ask today. Can anyone comment on what server will do the job? Like Joe, we are on a VPS with 512MB RAM and by the end of the day it is hanging on a thred.

I don't know much about server-specs, but if the server has a total of 515mb ram then surely that's way too small?

I mean, on a normal pc/laptop you need a minimum of 1gig ram just to run windows without it constantly crashing/stalling, 1.5gig to run it properly and have it usable with quite a few applications open, preferably around 2.5 to 3gig ram for it to be quite speedy.

My pc uses about 2gig of memory, and that's just running fairly standard stuff; I needed 2.5 gig for it to remain speedy and not to use massive pagefiles, ie it actually uses about 2gig ram, but I have 2.5gig in total so that I've got a bit spare to avoid it slowing down too much if I open tons of stuff.

Hello Simon, we are hosted via a virtual private server (vps). I certainly can't explain it as well as the link but in short we have 500MB of dedicated virtual memory on top of what is required for the Windows platform. We are considering moving up the ladder of services but are trying to get a feel from others for how much virtual memory is req'd to run the vpasp software without fail.
