I'm running a server at home with several small sites on it. I building a blog for a client where I just imported about 130 articles from Blogger.
Now today, I notice that the server hangs for periods of time (30sec +). Sometimes I get a 'server timed out' error. But then a few minutes later it's fine...
Do these hangs have anything to do with the fact that "ping" is enabled for all 130 articles? The blog is not 'live' yet in the sense that it's being used yet, however I'm guessing that there's massive pinging going on which is killing the server.
I temporarily removed the link to ping-o-matic, so we'll see if I notice any performance issues over the next day or two before I enable it again.
Does anyone else have any words (kind) of wisdom to impart on this lost soul? I really don't know where to start looking. I see that there could be some mysql tweaking that may need to be done.
