How stable is your Confluence system (and what's your technology stack)?

How stable is your Confluence system and what's your technology stack? I've always used ubuntu + mysql + apache mod_proxy and it's been rock solid on Confluence version 3.2 (weeks and weeks (and likely weeks) before an unexpected down).

Currently at a new gig with a new version and a setup that I didn't control, and it's going up and down like a slinky. Can't make it through a week (and sometimes a day) without either losing our ability to connect to it or having it crash. Still trying to locate the problem (is it confluence, our machine config, network gremlins, etc...) and work with IT to resolve it.

So, I'm just curious. Once you get through your initial install and shakedown, how would you characterize the stability of your system? What's your technology stack?

If it's a self managed install, similar to your stack. I have found it to be very reliable. Windows I've had more issues with.

With unreliability it's important to approach it as scientifically as possible and don't get caught chasing red herrings. Step through the Confluence performance page is a good place to start.

Also, I have found that utilising the war installations to minimise and version control our customisations to the install package helps.

However, the other solution, which we do @ AppFusions and push our clients onto is to host at Contegix. Rock solid and great support
