I'm having two problems that I'm hoping to gain some insight in.
Problem 1 : Server Failed to Respond
Currently, I am unable to create new nodes. When I try, I receive this message: "The server did not respond in time. Please try again." The same happens when I try to add or remove a users to/from the administrative or super moderator usergroups. We do have a few plugins and several themes, but my non-technical understanding is that our dual-server setup is fairly robust:
(a) Mysql Server
4 cores, 4gb of ram, 64 bit OS (CentOS).
We set up a 64gb drive. Our biggest db is 5gb, but we need to have enough space for the os, and also for the backups (so at least double the size of the dbs).
(b) Web Server
4 cores, 4gb of ram, 64 bit OS (CentOS again), using NGINX (not apache).
64gb of storage.
Mike suggested that we configure InnoDB, which we did and the site is much snappier now. However, I still can't create a node. ;_;
Problem 2: User Group CSS Override
We have a usergroup for our so-called "Managing Editors," who run the various portals on our network. They should have an administrator badge, which I've added to their user group css. However, this badge is being overridden by the super moderator user group's badge (Managing Editors are also super moderators). Is there any way I can cause the admin badge to be preferred over the super moderator badge?
What is your opinion? Thank you!
