Support » Fixing WordPress » Serious help needed regarding Akismet and Spam

  • Resolved table4five


    My domain is I’ve been getting a fatal cache error on it every day, and BlueHost finally determined that the Akismet plugin was the problem. I couldn’t even get in to deactivate it, they had to do it from their end. Once the plugin was deactivated, I stopped seeing the error.

    Table for Five is a large blog with over two years of posts, and the BlueHost tech support person offered the possibility that Akismet is not meant to protect larger blogs from spam. Could that be the case, or could it be something else? I looked at Spam Karma, but it says it is only compatible up to WP 2.1.

    Does anyone have another suggestion for me for spam protection?

    I don’t know about Akismet and larger blogs, though I do know that of another blog which is hosted with Bluehost that is several months old, quite popular with hundreds of posts, and the newer versions of Akismet work well on it. I guess this post is a bit old, but for new comers, upgrade to the newest version of Akismet and it should work swell.
