the problem with blogs…

Nothing philosophical here. Last night, I upgraded WordPress and wound up blog-less overnight. There was some problem with wp-cache that was fixed by removing the plugin entirely.

Seems Jason Heath is having a different kind of problem

This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota

Please contact this site’s webmaster.

Wait a few minutes and use your browser’s “Back” button or click here to try again.

If you are the webmaster, your account may have gotten this error for one or more of the following reasons:

* Your account has used more than its share of the cpu in the past 60 second sliding window.
* Your account has too many concurrent processes running simultanously.
* Your account has consumed too much memory.
* Your site was recently very busy trying to run inefficient scripts.

The solution would be to optimize your applications to use less CPU.
Adding appropriate indeces to your SQL tables can often help reduce CPU.
Using static .html documents instead of painful .php scripts will practically eliminate CPU usage.

  • I noticed this myself today–turns out that one of my WordPress plug-ins (comment-preview) was going nuts and hitting the server every few seconds. I got on the phone with Bluehost and figured it out. I guess it’s a tossup between these sort of problems or the mysterious Google 504 errors denying access to my blog previously. I’ll take WordPress and deal with those bumps.

    Your new blog look is awesome! I’ve only read in RSS recently, so I didn’t get to see the new look.

  • [...] also caught today’s blog outage, which is  something that comes with the territory when you’re balancing reasonably high [...]
