Movable Type/ Spam Overload


#1

Currently I use a web host that is having serious issues with spammers and Movable Type. MT has aspects that attract spamming devices running scripts at such an intense rate that the server chokes, causing periodic inaccessiblility to a site I maintain, sometimes requiring the booting of that server.

Is DreamHost experiencing this situation, and if you are, how are you addressing this problem, or if not, how are you avoiding these issues?

Thank you.

Those problems were fixed - check MT’s site. Either your hosting co. or you need to keep it up to date.

With Dreamhost it can be installed but you maintain it, from what I can tell reading the knowledgebase. Search the KB for “movable” and you will see some other info.

Cheers,
Peter
