    Are they saying it's bandwidth or CPU usage that is too high? Are you on shared hosting? Approximate traffic of your website?

    I am guessing I am on share but they say all the calls to the pages are coming from my wordpress. My main site does not seem to be in the equation although last night they pulled my entire site off line. They claimed it was looping although they could not pin point what the problem is. They did say that there was no viruses nor could they find any malicious scripts. I almost forgot ... they are saying bandwidth.

  4. It could be a problem with your wordpress install, but it sounds more like your host could possibly be clueless. Who is your host? WIndows or Linux? (Appears to be linux from your last thread). And re: your other thread: do you have a backup of the original database from your 2.0.4 install? Can you start over with your WP install?

    According to the oldtimers around here, it's best to do an incremental upgrade from old versions in the sequence 2.0.5 to 2.1, 2.1 to 2.3, 2.3 to 2.5, 2.5 to 2.8.5, 2.8.5 to 2.9 In theory you should be able to upgrade from 2.0.5 straight to 2.9 but people report more success with the incremental approach to ensure the database gets upgraded properly.

    Because I totally wrecked the older version, I did a clean install. I'll be honest with you .. it's because of my host that I had to install the new version .. they did something to the server back in December .. messed up my tinymce and the only way I was going to get it back was to upgrade .. since then .. just been one problem after another. May end up moving the entire site to another host ... in the meantime .. this company wants my wordpress shut down. Starting to delete most of the files now .. really too bad too .. I was picked up by a few reputable sites ... this just isn't very good for my reputation and notability .. site is up and down like a yo yo .. even on the best of days .. host plays a bit too much with websites. Till I am able to migrate ... I'll be putting my pages back up in html version.

    Thanks for help and advice.

  6. Don't waste your time; get a new host. If the host is that flakey, they'll be gone soon enough. It's not that big of a deal to change hosts: WordPress › PHP / MySQL Web Hosting.
