Wednesday, 2/28 -- blog running fine
Thursday, 3/1 -- blog no longer online, getting Internal Server Error
Friday, 3/2 -- contact Dreamhost (my host), and they suggest I upgrade to the new 2.1.2 and I do just that. According to WordPress everything updated just fine. Still get either a "Timed Out" or "Internal Server Error 500" so the upgrade -- while according to WP is good -- still has not solved this issue.
Now, to make it even more confusing, the episodes are still available on iTunes, and I can access my Dashboard. This is my first major issue with WP. Any help in this matter would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.
