Hosting Support Forum Guidelines and Maintainers

The purpose of the Hosting Support Forum is to assist user with questions related to hosting services and companies.

As this is not an advertising forum, be aware that the following are unacceptable content:

  • Ads for hosting companies
  • Affiliate links
  • Free hosting ads
  • Links to "Top Hosts" sites that are primarily affiliate-link based
  • URL shortening services such as Tiny Url or bit.ly

Failure to follow these rules can result in a post or comments being edited or deleted, or your user account banned.

Transition from Local to Web Host

I have no doubt this is a simple question, but I am struggling to sort it out in my head.

The process of putting a Drupal based website is as follows, correct?

Download Drupal on local machine.
Create site that I want to host.
Download Drupal on Web Host using cPanel.
Transfer files from local machine to cPanel.

Is that right? I am using GoDaddy to host, if that matters at all.

Thanks for the feedback as I am still unsure how to make the leap from local machine to web hosting.

Drupal 7 high mysql CPU usage - what more can I cache?


Due to a mistake I reserved an aws RDS instance with 1 CPU and 3.75 RAM - not ideal, but I did this for a year in advance. Crap! Naturally, Drupal the resource hog as it can be is dancing on the 90%-100% CPU usage line here. I was planning on at least 7.5 RAM and TWO CPU's I'm fucked!

I have Varnish 4 installed and working
I have Drupal default cache on (when I turn on Authcache, default fails and Varnish 4 fails)
90% of traffic is anonymous so caching as much as possible is obviously ideal.

The Drupal 7 install that I have is Pressflow optimized.
