Dreamhost delete my website!

wordpress

#1

Can someone help me with this below, Dreamhost does not answer me, what is the problem? too much traffic with wordpress (I have between 5000 and 10 000 visitors per day)
or there is a malicious script running on my website?
Dreamhost does not answer to me

Hello,

I’m writing to inform you that we had to disable your "vincentabry.com"
domain

because it was causing a high load on your webserver “XXXXXX”. Since
you are on a shared

hosting service and it is affecting other customers sites, this is not

something that we can allow to happen.

Here is some of the output from the Apache service, to help you figure
out the issue:

You may want to read this Wiki article on how to go about reducing your
usage:

If you would like to continue hosting this type of script without
reducing

your CPU usage you will have to upgrade to our vps service:

http://www.dreamhostps.com

This will set you up on your own virtual server where you will not

affect other customers sites.

If you do not wish to go with a VPS plan,you will need to remove or

optimize the script before we can allow you to continue hosting your

site on the shared hosting platform. Unfortunately, because of the

strain these types of sites put on our servers, these are your only

options.

Please let us know how you’d like to proceed and we’ll be

happy to assist you further.

Thanks!

Brandon

Did you get slashdotted or something like that?

#3

I think I arrive in first in google.fr for dailymotion !!
But why dreamhost cut my site… this not really fair nor very professionnal
What to do??
Do I need to change my web hosting?


#4

If any site gets massive (even if temporary) traffic the server is going to crash.

There are solutions for sites who’ve been slashdotted or Digg’ed. Basically they’ll mirror your site to several servers and implement load-balancing while your traffic is too much for a single server to handle. If you continue to be top on a popular Google search you’re going to need to look at a private, dedicated server (or several).

Here’s an idea: Tell Support the reason you’re getting so many hits and they might mirror your site to it’s very own server/s while the hits are running hard and in return you allow them to add an advert for their company. Consider it sponsorship.

Good job getting top on Google btw! :slight_smile:


#5

Thanks for your answer, I ask for this to Dreamhost but they don’t answer to my emails.

I am very sad about this, I worked 9 years on the web sometimes day and night and looking at this today makes me very sad.
All the efforts I put in this to see my website down…
I cannot believe Dreamhost doesn’t understand my situation
I am just a blogger and webmarketer…

I don’t know what to do

Should I wait until tomorrow or should I try to go with a VPS or dedicated ?

thank you.

Vincent


#6

I also asked Dreamhost this afternoon to move me on VPS but no answers


#7

Are you replying to the emails you’ve already received or using a fresh contact form?

Starting a fresh one will ensure it gets a response :wink:


#8

GREAT!!! DREAMhost answered me, they find a room for me on a private server
Wow! very nice from them I am living again!!
So I think it was due to the high traffic
thanks all!
Hope this VPS will be great
I setup 300MB and 300GHZ CPU as recommended by Dreamhost


#9

Hey that’s great Vincent :cool:

Keep us informed of how it goes!


#10

Yes I will keep you informed.
Currently site is still down
it has been online after the move for 10 minutes but then it is down with sql error wordpress: it says: wp-config problem or mysql.site.com unavailable


#11

Do the nameservers stay the same when you go to a private server?

#12

The nameservers stay the same. The IP address of all your sites changes since you’re assigned a new unique IP address for your personal server.

What are [color=#CC0000]50DISK50[/color], [color=#CC0000]3DOM50[/color], and [color=#CC0000]1IP1DOM50[/color]?
They’re Dreamhost coupons!


#13

I’m wondering if the load of your site is crashing the MySQL server; unless you got the PS MySQL also, you PS will still use the shared MySQL server without reserved resources.

I’m not saying this is what happened, I’m just thinking out loud. :wink:

#14

By the way… how much usage would be considered “acceptable” on a shared acct?

I know there’s some flexibility while we are not affecting other users on the same machine, but there’s got to be some ballpark figure one can check against, right?

Is such “quota” (so to speak) given to each domain? or is it per dreamhost account?

some stuff I’d like to learn, hehehe… just curious


#15

It takes them a while to convert your account over to PS. It’s not instantaneous.

Did they give you the “all clear”?

What are [color=#CC0000]50DISK50[/color], [color=#CC0000]3DOM50[/color], and [color=#CC0000]1IP1DOM50[/color]?
They’re Dreamhost coupons!


#16

That’s a really good question, and I don’t know the answer other than to say that the usage is likely to be considered “unacceptable” when/if it negatively impacts the ability of the shared MySQL server to serve other sites.

I have no idea what a “ball park” figure for that might be or if it is even possible for there to be a “general case” (different servers are likely to have very different loads depending upon what sites are being served from it). I would think that you could enjoy higher usage on a server that is lightly populated with only occasional usage users than you would on a server with many heavy users - that just seems to be common sense, but I have no idea how that translates into a “real world” metric.

As far as I know, there are no longer any “quotas” (like the old “conuery limits”), just the “don’t overload the server” caveat (so it’s likely to vary quite a bit depending upon circumstances and other users).

Maybe someone with more authoritative knowledge can educate us all on this? :wink:

–rlparker


#17

so if IP changes, is it why my websites are down?

but if you see the site it looks like a sql problem?


#18

I can see for my websites in dreamhost panel:

Your website does not appear in the Apache configuration file.


#19

All I’m saying is that it takes DH support a while to get all your domains sorted out when they convert over to PS. I think they change your mysql server as well so moving to PS is a non-trivial operation that does take time. (They’ve mentioned that if they charged a setup fee it would be something like $100, so they’ve gotta be doing something that would earn that money!)

I’d submit a support ticket asking if all your sites are supposed to be working yet or if they’re still moving them over to your PS server.

What are [color=#CC0000]50DISK50[/color], [color=#CC0000]3DOM50[/color], and [color=#CC0000]1IP1DOM50[/color]?
They’re Dreamhost coupons!


#20

Hello,
Well now everything seems loaded but it takes eternity for each time a sql request is done like: adding a comment, adding a post or using admin
don’t know if it is normal but I already set all the best parameters: wp-cache, 2300MB/2300GHZ and even rebooted server.
I would like to hear from dreamhost but they don’t answer very quickly, so I know nothing
