Hosting a databse server from home
« on: 04-21-2010, 18:33:23 »
am currently having some issues with my mysql server.
I keep getting some extremely high System Load averages on my server and apparently it's caused by mysql.
so i would like to take the mysql database of that server and host it from my home pc .
is this at all possible

Yes you could. You would have many more problems than you are experiencing now if you try to host a database remotely.

What are you using the database for? Also, what sort of traffic are database usage are you experiencing? Many times it comes down to needing better hardware to host on.

You definitely could do that but does your home PC really have a good enough connection to the net to allow you to do that. Most web servers are hosted at key points on the major backbones. They're accesible and fast. Moving to your home computer you won't have the same bandwidth and connectivity power.

Maybe switch your database to a different server but not your home computer. Just my view obviously!

I know of one famous method called Apache where you can host a server through your home I think the price is very low or free, but if your computer is off so is your website!
