Support » Fixing WordPress » Cache and Memory Problems

  • Let me start by saying I don’t have any technical skills anymore. I used to program in C++ many years ago so I can maneuver around a little.

    I signed up for a WordPress site back in October based on a recommendation of Dreamhost listed on your site. I went through the setup wizard and everything seemed to be find. It came with WP Super Cache.

    My site is now growing in traffic and I have constant site down problems. I was told to enable WP Super Cache. I enabled it when the blog was first installed. However, I have just discovered by running a trace that it doesn’t appear to be running. (See below) I was told to uninstall WP Super Cache and reinstall it. This is scary since I didn’t install it in the first place.

    04:19:34 /?p=1 Setting up WordPress actions
    04:19:34 /?p=1 Supercache caching disabled. Only using wp-cache. Non empty
    GET request.

    I never signed up to be a server administrator I just wanted a blog. Can I get some help on what needs to be done? Below are the errors that cause my site to go down, sent from Dreamhost. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with this.
