Cyber Monday, the busiest day of the year for online sales, is fast approaching and with time running out, ForLinux, one of the UK’s leading providers of open source hosting and IT support, is reminding Internet retailers to perform essential server maintenance or potentially miss out on bumper sales.
Monday, Nov. 28th, is the date when the Internet industry predicts Internet transactions to reach their highest level ever, with sales predicted to top the £1028m* spent online last year.
Steve Nice, technical director at ForLinux, has been advising his clients to prepare for Cyber Monday for several months. "It’s crucial that online retailers prepare for the upsurge in traffic that happens on Cyber Monday. Time is running out to make sure servers and applications are ready to withstand the demand. With so little time left to prepare, we’re encouraging online retailers to follow our six last minute tips: check your logs, bandwidth, database, RAM, Apache configuration and reboot."
