Bits & Pieces was down this morning due to “overloading of the server” it’s on. My account was suspended sometime over night when they discovered something on the site was causing their server to be overused. They don’t normally give you a lot of help, or at least help that I can understand, though I must say the guy I talked to was better than most. Most of it is still over my head. I was able to get them to re-instate the account while I try to figure out the culprit. At their suggestion I disabled a few plugins and am beginning to go through an access log text file from the last 24 hours. So, for now the comment editing and BABBQ countdown clock are disabled.
Right now I’ve loaded the access log file into a spreadsheet and am sorting the 846,991 line spreadsheet by IP address to see if there might be one main culprit. If so I can ban that IP address from accessing the site.
