My site went down two times yesterday! Aaagh… I do my job, I want the world to handle it when a person does beyond what they anticipated. I am in between two worlds; I sat in back of the class and played chess with the nerds, then went to American Football practice and was a middle linebacker.
HoboTraveler.com is now on a designate server, and it went down two times yesterday. Something about a limit on Apache of a number, the Hosting tech wanted to raise it to 150; I said max it at 255. I want no human limits put on me, not by made by one human as to what I am capable of.....
The nightmare of a big site, lots of traffic, hosting companies do not host big sites, they plan on failure of sites, not on what they sell, unlimited traffic, unlimited this, unlimited that, blah blah blah… Please I read the ad and said, ok I pay.
I am in great fear of having explosive traffic, and my site will crash. The hosting techs just are not trained to deal with huge traffic.
I have the best problem in the world, like having the IRS knocking on my door and wanting more money because I make too much money. Too much traffic is not a problem it is an obstacle, and a great way to have a Hosting Tech hear a Big Ape Roar.
Nevertheless, in the end, I do not like the embarrassment of trying to explain all the reasons when the site is down. The explanations do not suffice, when some old guy in Florida wants to get his daily dose of world travel, I want to say, read on.
