My friend and I purchased a Cobalt RaQ3 webserver for our gaming club to host our site. Our problem is it keep crashing, I am assuming that it is due to only having 32MB of ram, and it is seeing a lot of traffic due to the release of a new PCGS song. (we had the #4 song on, parody section, for a while)

Long story, short as possible..... the front page of our site is ASP intensive and the server is running about 60 email accounts but only about 6 websites. It is registering high cpu usage. We have seen 50 people at once accessing our site (mostly tring to download our new song which got linked on the front of as well as others, [small pimp]). Our hosts up/downstream pipes are phat. OC-12.

Any suggestions other than installing more ram (which I will do ASAP!) to make this thing run better? Or do we need to think about getting a beter (faster-bigger) server, like an XTR?

If it was up and running now I would send out a link for shits and giggles but right now the traffic is putting out its pilot light. I think.

Anyway, any coherent comments will not be ignored
