I'm screwed & completely at lost :(
I'm running a wordpress 3.0.3 based blog hosted by GoDaddy server (normal account) since mid June,2010. Occasionally the server went down but it was alright with me.
Just yesterday, I received emails from GoDaddy Network Violations dept. about an issue related to my hosting account stating that if its not resolved within 72 hrs, my account will be suspended, the issue is:
Improper directory structure: GoDaddy limits the files number to 1024 in any of the wp-content/uploads directories. WordPress organizes my blog directories on monthly & yearly basis & all the created directories contains more than 1024 files as follows:
#Files: Location Year/Month
I was able to look in the directories & see that wordpress automatically creates 3 versions of every uploaded image (thumbnail/medium/large) so there are 3 times as many images as we actually have, some images are duplicated. I'm using "Windows Live Writer" for posting instead of WP editor.
Now GoDaddy suggest either I go for Virtual dedicated server or reduce the number of files in each directory to be less or equal to 1024. The problem is that I don't know which of the images on these directories are actually attached/used by the related posts.
If only there's I could delete all the un-necessary images.
NOTE: I have deleted all the un-attached images from WP media gallery & I found a plugin that lets you organize images folders further into years, months, & days so that will solve the problem going forward.
Please experts help me on this critical issue, am expecting sponsors during this week & this problem will smash my chances & wash away all my past efforts.
Sorry for the long post :(
