EXPERT WORDPRESS DEVELOPER TO MANAGE LOAD / MYSQL CONNECTION RESTRICTION ISSUE
One of our customers site is being DDoS attacked, and, thousands of connections are being opened to the MySQL database.
As the server has a max. number of connections, usually, the site is down with the error: Error establishing a Database Connection
We need an expert developer who can:
1st. Restrict the MySQL connections created (Activating Advanced Cache functions, and researching which can be the plugin that's causing the issue).
2nd. Find a way to mitigate the DDoS / Botnet Zombie attacks (Using DynDNS, Dns Made Simple, Cloudflare and others to automatically switch to a new server once one is down).
The objective is to mitigate the problem and bring the site live again.
