If anybody has any suggestions or information on what could be causing this please let me know.
I have moved and set up our site. for several days it work great even under load of switching the A records to the new server from the shared hosting it is on now. A records were moved back after site slowed to almost a halt with no load showing to cpu or memory or users but before changing name servers and completing the move, I feel the config on the new server should be correct. snagadeal.net would be the name of our site to see how the site is currently running on shared hosting and is a mirror image.
