HOSTING PROBLEM – Notice to My Splendid Subscribers & Rock-on Readers…

Hey folks, Guv here!

Just a quick note to say I've had some pig-ear problems with my hosting provider this last week, and am taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen again. I'll be writing some more about this, soon as.

Meantime, I know there have been a lot of people finding my site down this last few days, and apologies. Service will resume, blog posts and all, as soon as…well, ridiculously soon. (Coming week.)

Setup Unmanaged VPS (4 Noobs!) ... with vpsBible
Secure WordPress. Properly. ... with wpCop, the platform's dedicated security website
Olly 'the_guv' Connelly's site and 'WordPress 3 Ultimate Security' book.

This was my fault. Lunarpages couldn't cope with a traffic spike. But that's only to be expected on a shared host. My other sites are pretty much unaffected.

Especial apologies to the good chaps who've linked to my site in the last week. Of course, this extra traffic is all your fault 😉 I'm sorry you've been recommending away, only for some of your visitors to be bounced away. Or to put it another way, “Damn!”

Right, I'm off to continue sorting this issue…or was that to go down the pub. I'm sure it was one of the two…

Bear with me.
