First thing’s first: I need someone available right now and probably for the next 12 hours to assist with a site launch that’s scheduled for 8:30PM EST today, 6/10/14. If you are not immediately available, this is not for you.
Second: I need someone who is expert level with WordPress and AWS (and probably the LAMP stack). You need to have expertise in both technologies, and have considerable experience deploying WordPress sites on AWS. Special preference given if you’ve deployed a particularly large or complex website on AWS before.
Here is our problem: We’re experiencing some issue that we can’t track down that is putting considerable strain on Apache and MySQL, causing the website to hang. We keep experiencing the dreaded “white screen of death”. This isn’t a load issue, as we have way more capacity than we need. It appears that a plugin or some other function is causing a glitch in the AWS config.
Bottom line, our WordPress site and AWS aren’t playing nicely, and with our site going live tonight, we need this resolved.
Your task would be to analyze our config, troubleshoot the issue, and propose a solution. We may also need you to be available on Thursday and Friday, should we experience more issues.
