We need an experienced WordPress and Linux Server expert or consultant to thoroughly evaluate our WordPress environment to increase performance and speed, reduce "database connection" errors, allow for the most possible traffic, and evaluate our website and WP plug-ins to determine the optimal server settings needed. We run a very high-traffic, dynamic, media-driven kids site. In addition, we need consultant to evaluate our web-site and make determinations based on the following questions. Any/all information will be provided by us.
1.) Is WordPress the right environment for the traffic needs of our website?
2.) Is our current dedicated server powerful enough to handle traffic we are currently getting and the bandwidth we are serving?
3.) What, if anything, is getting in the way of all of our visitors being able to access the site at all times
4.) Our site seems to maintain an ok server load, but excessive processes >250, slow the site down considerably for many users, what can we/you do to decrease processes? Can more powerful servers handle more processes?
5.) Is our SQL environment slowing things down?
Essentially, we believe our site/server/WordPress set up is optimized very poorly and it is costing us traffic as end user gets a slow experience or cannot connect or can connect intermittently. Furthermore, we have serious questions as to whether or not our current server is "Serving" us well, or, if we need something more powerful, and if so, what?
Basically, we want consultant to set us up with the BEST POSSIBLE ENVIRONMENT given the type of site we run. All changes/modifications should be documented in detail and run by us first.
