die hard is a xmas movie | by maryann johanson

site was down half the afternoon

Yes, FlickFilosopher.com was offline for several hours this afternoon. The server my site was on crashed because my site, among others, were hogging the CPU. Now, I had no idea that Movable Type was a CPU hog (my large database apparently also contributes to the hoggage), but my Web host moved me (and the other sites) to another server with a lower load, so the problem should be resolved now.

Of course, that meant the DNS for FlickFilosopher.com had to repropagate, which may have made the site appear to be still down on some users’ ends for a while after the move.

It doesn’t seem like I’m in trouble with my Web host — this was, in any event, the first indication I had from them that there was any sort of problem with this site — but I’m trying to figure out how to reduce the CPU load, if I can. I think upgrading to the latest version of MT will help, so it looks like I’m gonna have to fast-track that project.

I’ve lost half a day’s worth of blogging while I was dealing with this, so I’ll try to catch up this evening.
