Something happened today… my server got hit really hard… and I don’t know why! The Dreamhost surfer dudes weren’t much help even though I purchased phone support. In fact, the surfer dude on the phone appeared to be very exasperated with me. I finally just purchased their Dreamhost Virtual Private Server although I am really not sure that’s the real answer to the issue at hand. My traffic logs aren’t showing any unusual numbers. Mr. Surfer dude kept saying he thought it was a WordPress plugin causing the script overload which sounds more like an excuse than anything to me.
Everything seems to be back up and running. Fingers crossed it will be fine tomorrow.
