First of all, amazing plugin! I installed it on a fresh copy of wordpress installed on a folder on my webspace and it worked like a charm.
I do however have another blog that welcomes between 45,000 and 50,000 visits a day. This blog is running on a shared hosting package, and the moment I activated the live blogging plugin my blog stopped working and my hosts informed me that the admin-ajax.php file in WordPress was causing serious server load.
I really wanted to implement Live blogging to better my users' experience so I decided to upgrade my package. Just in time a friend offered me a dedicated server to run my blog off, and when I installed wordpress and migrated the database over and activated the live blogging plugin, it crashed apache on that server too (which is a pretty strong server)
I'm just wondering if you could give me a bit of help here mate. I've gone into the live-blogging.js file and increased the call from every 15 seconds to every minute but that still doesn't stop apache from crashing.
Please advise as I'm feeling completely lost. I've had a considerable amount of downtime and I'd love to get the site back up and running, preferably with your plugin supporting at the forefront
