I need a talented PHP programmer to take a look at a custom coded reminder application that is used to send email reminders.
It is a complex script that interfaces with a number of API's (Twitter etc.) and sends email, sms and Twitter reminders. Currently it is using too many server resources and causing Apache crashes.
You will need to look through the logs (site runs on a MediaTemple VPS with Plesk and CentOS) and identify whats causing the resource issues and tweak the php scripts.
I believe the issues may be caused by the cron jobs we run to send the reminders and also MySQL and qmail issues.
You will need strong PHP skills as well as knowledge of Plesk, MySQL, Linux and SSH.
If you do a good job we may send through on going work.
