It’s happening again.
Just when I thought things were running smoothly, this buggering site has started acting up again. It’s up and down like a yoyo and I haven’t a clue what’s causing it.
I moved the whole kit onto a new server recently and it has been belting along. The old server had been a bit overloaded but the new one is clear and clean. For the geeks amongst you, it has a response time of around 600ms where the old one had been approaching an average of around 16s. There is no indication of anything untoward on the monitors, apart from the site dropping.
So it looks like I’ll have to dig out the old pitchfork and start digging through bloody log files. As if I didn’t have enough on my plate.
Incidentally, those of you who use WordPress.com for your site are in for a treat. They propose to launch WordPress 5 on the 19th and you will all be introduced to the delights of Gutenberg! That old familiar screen where you write your outpourings is about to change into a weird and surreal world of blocks.
