If the server is dedicated you'll normally have "root" access..if not you'll get access to a folder away from root..
How to tell ?..depends if your server is a windows box or some flavour of nix/nux ..if you have PHP usually means you are on a linux box .
What is your OS and control panel type.

Def on Linux. And yes it says root of my FTP.
But that unfortunately still leaves me with my problem :P

How much traffic is your website getting and how much do you pay monthly?
| 10:49 am on Mar 13, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Monthly fee: cca 600 $
Monthly traffic: cca 500,000 pageviews

traffic in gigs ?

you should be able to login to your server with a ssh client such as PuTTY and monitor processes and memory with the 'top' or 'ps -aux' or 'vmstat 1' commands.
in some cases you will have to login as a less-privileged user and then 'su root'.
average: 1 pageview/5 seconds - should be no problem
|Monthly traffic: cca 500,000 pageviews |
peak: x pageviews/second - it depends

A server should be able to handle the traffic. It could be a network issue, check with your web hosting company.

Is it always the same time these problems happen? It could be the hosting company or another user on the network running backups. With only 500,000 pageviewes/month on a dedicated server, I would search for external problems first.
