My Downtown Time

By | May 5, 2006

It was brief, but if you were quick you caught it. seagurs was offline for about an hour yesterday afternoon. There was an ominous message about the account being suspended and that I needed to contact billing immediately. Of course my first reaction was that a bill was not paid, but with it being deducted from my credit card I could not see how that was possible.

Account Suspended

Apparently I had a script that was running in a loop and causing the server CPU usage to run at 100%. This is something usually left for malicious code, but this script is needed in the WordPress structure. The best I can figure is that this has to relate to the up/down hosting from yesterday. I was having problems previewing my post, and when that was happening the script was probably running and creating a problem.

I have upgraded my WordPress version from 2.0 to 2.0.2. I suspect that the time out errors I was receiving yesterday led to this script running out of control and thus the brief suspension.
