Grabauskas: Latest wordpress, php 5.6
Lokan: It’s a plugin or theme that’s old
Lokan: Not wordpress or php.
Alward: Jeng: I installed slimstat, it worked without breaking things, I changed some slimstat settings to store more archives of visitor logs, the site began to slow on each visit, I started getting “cannot establish database connection” when trying to visit the site, ssh stopped working, I restarted my server and it got a new IP, I was able to ssh into my new IP, started apache / mysql, getting blank loading when trying to access my wor
Jeng: You might check the tuning of your MySQL if things slow down as you collect more data.
Sheckler: Concluded the reason for my server breaking down previously was slimstat filling up all the storage with error dumps
Snide: The site is just not loading
Tyon: WordPress is not loading
Jeng: Ok, I thought you said it’s working now
Shick: No, I can ssh, run php scripts, view site in browser, etc
Jeng: Do you access the site via IP or domain name?
Zilk: Or to make sure it’s the right IP
Gruntz: Use the second one I don’t know if my domain updated
Jeng: When I try just the IP, it gets stuck at “connecting”
Jeng: Please pastebin your .htaccess file
Gurganus: Since to collapse due to slimstat
Jeng: Page sort of loaded for me. All the CSS files timed out
Pariente: But all the html in the source
Jeng: Open a new, blank tab.
Jeng: Right click and select “Inspect element” then click “network”
Jeng: The enter your IP in the address bar
Jeng: Slimstat seems to be enabled
Swofford: Didn’t you tell me to enable it
Jeng: Check your server’s error logs to see why things like the GET on style.css fails.
Jeng: That’s the problem. geez, should have seen that!
Armijo: But andreo.io is directed to the IP address that was before the server shut down
Jeng: Time to update the DNS!
Jeng: Where are you hosting that you don’t have a fixed IP?
Jeng: They can’t give you a fixed IP?
Dulude: There’s an elastic IP
Boeger: That follows changes in the instances
Castellari: But I think it costs extra
Jeng: I used AMazon a while ago but switched to Linode, then Digital Ocean
Toren: Why’d you switch to DO?
Jeng: At the time, Linode used hard drives and DO was SSD
Olmstead: I met a DO sysadmin in #math I think
Jeng: After I switched, Lindoe went to SSDs and KVM, too.
Seyfarth: Ok a fresh WP install looks OK
Rebman: So it’s not a server config
Gonyer: The server is totally fine
Jeng: After you’ve been running the site for a couple of days, run that MySQL tuning script
Meador: Why the inclination to SSD’s?
Haston: Any reason to be inclined to hard drives?
Lifland: Reliability, cost, vast amounts of disk space
Murdock: Ssd in some cases is still considered not as reliable as magnetic
Jeng: I’m running hard drives at home.
Seney: Especially with earlier linux kernel versions, but this has been fixed TRIM support
Jeng: Right. I was worried about TRIM support on my home machines.
Jeng: But mainly, I got a 2TB drive that’s less that 30% full. It’s hard to justify going out and buying a TB or so of SSD.
Ming: Thank you for all your help! :
