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.

Need a new host

Support at our current host has become an absolute nightmare and it's time to move. I'd appreciate recommendations on a web host.


Needs to be U.S. based

CPanel + WHM

Fully managed, but with full access for us

Various packages to choose from (cores, memory, space)

Currently we have two servers. One has a very busy site that is quite large and a development copy. Drupal 7 and CiviCRM.

The other hosts more than 20 sites, pretty much all Drupal, many with CiviCRM. All combined together, a fairly busy server.

Nginx - PHP 7 - Drupal 8 - Image Styles - Help

Hey everyone,

We are facing a rather peculiar issue with our new stack of Ubunt, Nginx, PHP 7 & Drupal 8. Specifically image styles are not being generated.

Our current NGINX conf is the following:

Provide a file directory to users

Hello there,

I'm currenty starting to set up my webpage with drupal and don't really know which modules could work good together to fit my needs.
The aim of the site is to provide about 4000 files to 300 users. Both growing. The users should be able to upload files in a subcategory of their choice.
Is there a way I can display a complete directory and make it browsable and downloadable?

Thank you in advance!

Edit: I'm currently playing around with views...

Error exceeded the 'max_questions' resource

This message temporarily blocked my web:

PDOException: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1226 User 'uxxxxxxx_name' has exceeded the 'max_questions' resource (current value: 108000) in lock_may_be_available() (line 164 of .../httpdocs/mydomain.com/includes/lock.inc).

I have read (in post of several years ago) that it is because of the limitations of a shared hosting, but my question is: What content causes so many queries to the database and why?:
- CMS Drupal?
- Any module?
- Any wrong code?

How can I now it?
