That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Thank you Doctor..
Hope you grow well..
I am in Oz so the global travel will slow.
My iPage site too much..
Any Aussies here ??..
Sorry, I didn't understand you.
Do you mean that you are in Austria and think that Austrian users will have slow response from your iPage site if you host it in US?.
That's not true for a nowadays internet. Overseas queries shall be some 0.3 seconds slower max..
Actually you don't have to trust me.
Check it yourself using ping on some Austrian iPage site and then on some US iPage site (e.g. www.yahoo.com)..
Doctor OZ is Australia.
The setting refered to for connections is set in the php.ini to which your host is stating that they are using one php.ini file for the server instead of individual files per customer..
What you can check is in your configure.php files make sure that use persistent connections is set to false.
define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?..
Oh, I must have known that!.
What a shame....
Persistant connections FALSE ??.
I am now confused..
During installation I was specifically instructed.
To 'check' the persistant connections options..
Wouldn't checking it make it TRUE ??..
I use racksapce for one of my clients, and they have a dedicated RHAS that host one store wth just a little over 2000 products, some 4500 attributes. It is averaging almost 3000 visitors per day with about 350 orders, and we have had great experence with them. Depending on your needs, I highly recommend rackspace..
Setting to 'false' did the trick 241 although the.
Installation procedure recommends 'true'..
If anyone has followed this thread there are.
TWO ( actually three ) configure.php files to edit..
Catalog/includes & Catalog/admin/includes.
The third configure.php is in Extras but doesn't.
Have any reference to persistant connections..
Strange thing is that my first install was set to 'true'.
But had no problems..
( now I will go and remove the pins from my web host doll )..
Thank you for the enquiry. This typically happens when the PHP code does.
Not close database connections after retrieving the required data. The.
Connection stays open and you cannot re-use it later due to the nature.
Of our infrastructure (load balancing web cluster)..
Unfortunately, we cannot increase the number of allowed.
Connections to the db for one virtual server, it is a global setting,.
Which could have devastating effects on the performance of the data.
If you close connections within the code each time, you should not.
Experience this problem..
EVERYTIME and I mean every time this matter is raised we are asked to blame.
The web iPage hosting company..
My first install of oscommerce went just fine..
I tinkered too much and found it easier to re-install it..
NOW I am getting this error message..
Could we try something novel here ? .
Instead of simply blaming the iPage hosting company could someone state.
In plain English just what the requirements of a GOOD iPage hosting company.
Hmm.. I cannot say "what the requirements of a GOOD iPage hosting company.
Should be", but I can provide you with the case that works.
I experience some 4-8hrs downtime every 1-3 months and once (in some 6 months) had to restore iPage site from couple of days old backup. Otherwise for a very cheap price everything was ok. As this is rather small iPage hosting they give you control over lots of things, and I never experienced problems because of slow server. You can monitor server load and usually it sits at about 25%..
My shop size is:.
Some 30-50 products;.
Some 1-3 purchases per day;.
Some 5-30 visitors per day;.
Some 100 customer accounts already.
If this is close to your shop size, that iPage hosting might be ok for you also..
