Many websites run applications that are database driven. Fetching the data from relevant databases and delivering the contents dynamically to a web page, is what most of these applications do.
As the data content or traffic increases, we’ve seen that these applications tend to get slow over time. In our role as Outsourced Tech Support for web hosting companies, we speed up MySQL server for our customers who are web hosts.
Many websites run database-driven applications, and a single missing entry in these tables can lead to website downtime. Database corruption is an alarming scenario for webhosts, who end up spending time and effort repairing and restoring their customer databases.
At Bobcares, our staff resolve such scenarios everyday in their role as Outsourced Support Engineers for web hosting providers. And we’ve learned that its better to stay pro-active and prevent a DB corruption, than fire-fighting a website downtime.
