Server Issues Today

Had my first major outage since I started this blog.

The db connection is timing out. Have no clue whether it is because of WordPress related issues or something on the hosting company’s end.

Pages were still loading but when tried to access some old data, the connection was timing out and giving an error.

To the geeks out there, below is the error that is being displayed on some of the pages –

WordPress database error: [Lost connection to MySQL server during query]

For now I have tried deactivating a plugin called Wassup. Hopefully this should resolve the issue.

In case you still experience time lag in page loading, please try to clear your cache. If that doesn’t help, let me know.

      Thanks, but so far so good. I guess it was that one errant plugin. After I deactivated it, WP seems to be working fine.

      How I concluded from the error that it could be a plugin was from the error message, although it was not apparent in the initial error messages –

      YEAR(post_date)=’2008′ AND MONTH(post_date)=’1′ AND
      DAYOFMONTH(post_date)=’23’ AND post_type = ‘post’ AND (post_status =
      ‘publish’ OR post_status = ‘private’) ORDER BY post_date DESC LIMIT 0,

      But some of the subsequent errors (I did not capture them) gave an indication that the issue could be with the pluggin –

      Once I deactivated it, operations are running fine.
