    Looking for a VPS or something.... currently pay 50/mo.

    I could probably use a shared, but I've had problems with my imap blocking me due to alot of auths so I switched to a VPS so I could have control over that.

    What's the actual problem that you're having with your liquidweb VPS?

    Every few days clamd fails, cpanel fails, imap fails, courier fails. Get bombarded by fail messages to my blackberry. The memory usage on the server is for some reason 90% and I can't figure out why and neither can they (only active websites on it is a half-dead forum and a business website that gets less than 20 hits a day).

    Have you monitored the server to see what the IOwait is like? IOwait is typically the cause of a lot of poor performance problems of VPS.

    Only other thing I can think of would be to back up your stuff and move to a fresh OS and cPanel installation (and hopefully you'll get put on a shiny new node as well)

    They "said" I have 512MB "dedicated".

    Fuck if I know. For some reason, there's 81% diskspace used too that I can't find via ftp.

    Only reason I went to VPS was that shared was giving me problems with the number of IMAP clients / auth'ing I was doing.
