  • I can’t seem to access my blog. Just wanted to check if Yahoo was down or if I was the only one with problems.

  • Has the blog worked in the past? Then you might contact Yahoo first.

    My WP blog via Yahoo is down too … last night it wasn’t accessible online at all, today just the posting back end is inaccessible … I’ve sent e-mail to Yahoo! but they’ve responded like … hmm … molasses in the past. Hope this gets fixed soon. Does WP have any clout to bug them?

    Not really. is from just a couple weeks ago.

    That was when they were removed from

    It’s back up now, but I am getting really getting frustrated with Yahoo.

    It works very slooow now 🙁

    I can understand your frustration and pain when the site is down – but if it is because of a host (no matter which host) it just doesn’t make sense to post in the WP forum.
    Send 1,000 emails to the host… call their toll-free number every 10 minutes… or something like that, to wake them up 🙂

    Happening again, very early Monday 5/22 morning.
    I understand that it’s Yahoo’s problem, not WordPress’s, but am posting again here just to publicly note it.
    Guess I will be in the market for a new host.

    Ah that’s such a load of crap. The Yahoo MySQL servers have been “down” for a very long time. A couple months ago I was doing some work for a lady hosting on Yahoo and their MySQL was in the tubes even then.

    I recommend you switch hosting ASAP

    i saw a post some time back by “******” when some people were discussing Yahoo and other possible hosts, and i have not seen any from him/her in some time, but i did just go their site and it looks like they have some really good plans that are reasonable.
