I administrate a provincial website in Canada for a friend who subcontracts me.
This one particular website is constantly giving us problems - the website will go blank, a file will get corrupted, a plugin will stop working, errors will show on the website, yadda yadda. It's a constant thing.
We have a load of different sites... most hosted with Hostgator which run perfectly. But this site in question is the only one hosted on this server.
My friend asks me what could his client be doing or what could be happening to cause these constant errors. I told him it could be a bunch of different things such as server outages, data noise on the cables running into the server... or whatever. I tried to impress upon him that it's not WordPress because of the fact it's only happening with this site on this one server. He then reasoned that 'it must be WordPress if it can't handle power outages or something else etc'.
I used the example 'you can build a perfect brick house but if the foundations aren't good then the house will never be quite right'.
Does anyone know of a better way I can put this... to make him understand?
