My domain toursardinia.com is using orchard, and I have found it unavailable a few times, the browser showing a 503 error.
This has happened even when I just requested the index page in the browser.
It seems the site is using up too many resources, and the application pool then shuts down, what could be causing this?
The server guys have told me:
Thanks for your inquiry. Please be advised that my investigation shows that the application pool, where your site is hosted, was down. I have to restart the app pool and things are working fine. Upon further checks into Windows Event Viewer, the error messages
are as followed:
Application pool toursardinia.com(domain)(4.0)(pool) is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.
A worker process 8984 serving application pool toursardinia.com(domain)(4.0)(pool) failed to stop a listener channel for protocol http in the allotted time. The data field contains the error number.
A process serving application pool toursardinia.com(domain)(4.0)(pool) exceeded time limits during shut down. The process id was 8156.
The error message clearly shows that the issue is with your site and not our server. Please be advised that when your site is down, your Control Panel at
is not down. This shows that the issue is not with our server.
You need to check your site thoroughly and ensure that your site is not utilizing the resources set under your account. From what I can check, there is a limit of 175 MB memory placed on your application pool and this is the max we can give under your current
Anybody any suggestions, you're most welcome!
