I’m sure readers have noticed this website hasn’t been running properly the past few days. I thought I had everything sorted out before I went to bed this morning. Unfortunately I woke up to a site that was acting up again. I’ve now uninstalled a few plugins and tweaked the settings on one other. My thought is either a bad setting with Super Cache or the database plugin I was using caused the recent events. I’ll find out over the next few days if I have finally resolved the problem.
Over the years I have rarely gotten any decent help from support forums. From what I’ve seen there really is just to much negative attitude from members in these forums. This is one reason I have stayed away from the WordPress Support forum. With my latest issue I had no choice but to turn to this resource. I had exhausted every solution I could think of at the time. Turns out all I needed to do was a SQL database refresh. After following the easy steps given to me everything seemed to be working smoothly. Until this morning.
I once again did another database refresh and then did some house cleaning in regards to plugins. Only time will tell if this fully resolves the problem being seen. Down time is never an option for me. When a website is down this reflects badly upon the owner, your search engine ranking, readers and advertisers. I’ve done my best to resolve this hiccup in a timely manner. Hopefully the problem is now resolved.
Without the input of WordPress Support forum members I wouldn’t have been able to come up with the proper solution. My mindset was in a totally different direction in regards to the source of the major glitch.
I’m currently running the latest version of WordPress – 3.0.
Main page at this time doesn’t seem to be running as fast as it was the other day. I will have to keep an eye on this the next few days.
