Pingdom did a survey and research on stability of blogging services all over the world from Nov. 10,2008 to Mar. 10,2009.The uptime of each service is the standard measurement of the test and the final report was published some days ago.
We could see that Typepad works very well and wins the first prize,followed by Blogger and WordPress.com.However,Typepad is a paid service and meanwhile Blogger and WordPress.com are providing free services.I appreciate to see such a great result which indicates that both Blogger and WordPress.com never dump into a lousy ground because of free.Instead they are chasing the standard to be professional in the field and well,they really do it and get it.
Eh,Windows Live Spaces is not good example.Even though it’s in the fourth position,its downtime is around 4 hours more than Top three’s.Shame!
Now you know which one should you choose to start your blog,don’t you?
WordPress Release Candidate 1 was released on 1st of Dec and now my blog had clothed it.It was announced that 280 commits have been polished and a new admin UI introduced.However,the bug I met is still undone.
I think the final version of 2.7 will come within 1 week.I hope at that time more issues can be solved so that I could run it much comfortable.If your guys want to try it in advance,you can download it here and install to your server.All are minutes’ work.
Have a good day!
I have heard thousands of times about WordPress 2.7 since it was claimed to have many improvements in every corner.Now it has gone to the third beta and RC1 will be introduced in perhaps next week.Thus,I just upgraded to this version first because the main bugs had been inspected by those senior testers and fixed by the development team.
At my first glance after installation,a highly integrated dashboard displayed.
It makes things to be easier as you can do most of those in a very short distance.And if you remember,when converted from 2.5.* to 2.6.*,a new function created which allows automatic upgrades of existing plug-ins after several clicks.Now it’s further more.The latest WordPress allows us upgrading the whole platform in that simple way.
I’m not the professional fellow and I only used it for minutes.So I can get a very skin-deep thing only.I think you’d better to try it by yourself to know better.
As you may mention,my website always displays ‘service unavailable’ with no predictions.Indubitably it is caused by high CPU and memory utilization on my shared hosting server that I had talked for many times.
That messed me up because I tried thousands ways to optimize my blog in order to prevent the issue occurring,but failed all the time.Recently I visited a lot of support forums which are concerning on WordPress Platform and I found that there are a number of people who meet the same problem with me.They all pointed the problem into database.
So I checked it out by phpMyAdmin and saw the sizes of some data are unwonted and redundant,especially under wp_option which is 1.3MB.I deleted some unnecessary lines and cron to clean up the database and went back to Option-Permanent links to update it.Then I checked again under wp_option,there has been down into 200KB only.
I refresh my blog for many times and till now it works nicely.I hope when you meet ‘service unavailable’ issue here,leave your words to me so that I can keep monitoring and going to fix the issue as soon as possible.And if you have any idea to help me do better regarding to that matter,you’re most welcome!
May I be lucky forever!
