You are as free as anyone else to continue running whatever obsolete and exploitable version of WP you want.
I said nothing about upgrading WordPress, I was talking about upgrading hosting in response to the person above me.
WordPress has always presented themselves as the program for the n00b or for the common guy. So WHY is it suddenly so server heavy? And I'm concerned about 2.7, is it only going to get worse?
That is not a rant. Those are valid points/questions. If YOU don't like it YOU don't have to respond, certainly not to respond that you're ignoring me.
WP runs just fine on thousands of sites, with thousands of posts, and Gb's of traffic. It's impossible for ANY developer to write code that is going to perform the same way across every single server set up on every single site on the web.
Hmmm. Okay then. Because you say so, it *must* be true.
My sites are currently on a server to themselves and still having issues. You cannot logically say that because WP runs fine on thousands of other sites that there MUST not be a problem anywhere with the program. I'm not an idiot, I know nothing will work everywhere in every possible scenario. But not only do I fit the installation requirements, I have done everything though from optimizing my installations to the databases to installing cache plugins to removing useless plugins to upgrading PHP and MySQL and installing accelerators, etc, etc, ETC. Everything.
There's the door ...
Gee, thanks. Not that I needed you to show me the door. I'm already looking for proper alternatives. A pity, really, I've been a WordPress fan girl since the absolute beginning. I have the shirts to prove it. Again, you don't like that I'm getting frustrated with this after having been dealing with it since 2.6 came out, then don't reply. Simple solution.
@tcindie -- I'm currently running eAccelerator 0.9.5.3. I'll look into those others, thanks.
@zouk -- I'm afraid that neither of those are the issues for me, thanks though!
(For what it's worth, I believe I made this statement in another post regarding this, my issue isn't so much it being slow or stopping but in using too many resources.)
