i have a very large site, huge assets folder (1gb.. images & files), multilanguage: site is in 6 languages, database (25mb export to SQL), 1800 pages, 300 per language..

the problem:
Windows Apache server uses HUGE amounts of CPU/ RAM .. When visiting a page, every page, the CPU goes sky high. The server crashes when too many ppl are visiting

What could be the cause?

I dont get errors in my log, i do get a few, but they dont look related to the crash of the server

Could it be that the assets are too big?
