I missed the Friday Celebration of Small Things at the Lexa Cain blog spot, so I’ll just celebrate today. L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog share the Celebrate hosting duties with Lexa. Join in the celebration by clicking on this icon to share something.
Well, my little blog was down again. This time, the hosting service, HostGator said I had exceeded by far my CPU usage. What????? So they simply pulled the plug. After tearing my hair out, I found the email advising me of the blockage and went to work to correct it. Only took a week of reinstalling plugins and finally deciding what to do with the rest of what I called “junk.”
The offending plugin,WordFence, which scans to keep out hackers and offensive material, had gone berserk, scanning 24/7.
Now, my little blog, at which I post maybe once a week, could not have possibly used that much CPU resource, so I still don’t understand what happened. All I know is that it’s up and running again for which I am grateful, celebrating doing my happy dance.
What are you celebrating?
