These days, I had been seeing more and more errors like this:
My time came this week. Dreamhost deleted 5 (FIVE) of my databases from all my best sites, wiping out almost half of all my websites and most of my revenue income.
I have a couple of questions that I think it would be good if Dreamhost answer then to everyone:
Where’s the "No more conuery limits! " policy, as stated on this newsletter?
I guess what this newsletter was meant to say was: over 5M conueries you have to pay, now, over 5M, you don’t pay, but your database can be deleted anytime with no prior warning.
I’ve read about the polite email warning. Have anyone ever received one of this?
What are the criteria to delete a database?
I have one other db that has 5.345 MCn and did not get deleted; while another one with just over 2M got deleted.
Why have Dreamhost deleted 5 databases at once? Why all at once?
Why not just slow down / stop responding for a while for MySQL overloads, like they do for PHP?
I deeply think my problem was caused by Google crawler as my sites as very few visitors, (all together ~500 daily), so it would be a good idea to slow or stop mysql on unusual spikes.
How do people get invited to dreamhostps?!
Thanks for any HELP!
