Mitch Rezman: This question is related to account: birdandparrot.info

Mitch Rezman: sure – spike in core usage over the past 30 minutes

Lachezar U.: it could be as the site is loading fine on my end now – url:https://prnt.sc/qalk2c

Mitch Rezman: yes – buts crashing every 5 – 10 minutes and then recovering – I’ve had the site for 17 years – something is wrong – there was no traffic spike but there was a spike in core usage over the past 30 minutes – what would cause that?

Lachezar U.: that is strange, I do not find obvious reason for the spike, so let me post a ticket to our advanced techs for further investigation

Mitch Rezman: that would be great – I am waiting for my developer to mitigate a bot attack by installing Recaptcha – this is a zencart store (trying to move it to woo – https://www.screencast.com/t/q3aBaOe9

Lachezar U.: the ticket is just posted now and will be updated with more details in 15-20 minutes

How We Repaired A WordPress Database Crash After Site Migration

HI Jim,

 

Hope your weekend is going well

 

When trying to add a new post in WordPress, the site times out.

 

I drilled down and it looks like a really quick fix – please provide a fix at your earliest convenience. (see SG support response below)

 

Hello Mitch,

 

Thank you for contacting our Help Desk center!

 

I checked your website and I noticed that upon creating a new post the page is loading with 404 page not found.

 

This is why I checked the setup of the website I noticed that there are two URLs applied for it:

Why Open Source Is An Experts Choice For Ecommerce Vs Hosted Platforms

If I were a cockatiel my crown would stand up straight when reading articles comparing web hosting sites like Shopify to WordPress.

cockatiel with crown up

 

There are other examples but to start because it appears that many people don’t understand the cord differences.

 

Shopify is a hosted platform.

 

You rent their servers, use their templates and are beholden to their support.

 

I think Shopify has about 600,000 stores right now.

 

WordPress is open source – it’s free, anyone can start a WordPress site although they will lead a host with the server to mount it on.

 

There are about 77,000,000 WordPress sites globally – about 1/3 of all internet sites.

Why You Don’t Know Jack About WordPress Migrations

We are migrating our WordPress blog to a new host.

We will add the Woocommerce plugin and then migrate all the data from our current zen cart ecommerce store to the new woocommerce store

 

my short list is

 

https://getflywheel.com/pricing/

https://pressable.com/pricing/

https://www.greengeeks.com

https://www.dreamhost.com/website-builder

https://www.a2hosting.com/solutions

https://www.inmotionhosting.com/wordpress-hosting-promo?

https://www.siteground.com/speed

 

I didn’t see pricing on hyve.com

 

I may go with 2 hosts because we have 4 

‘hobby” sites that are really small but our current site gets 100,000 page views/mo and I like dedicated servers.

 

Flywheel is cool (I thought) because you can build your dev site on your desktop for free and when you’re ready to go live you can just push it to their servers  – no muss no fuss,

 

They also have something called “Blueprint” which maps out any number plug-ins that you use on a regular basis.

 

They (the plug-ins) can be added to any new site with a single click

 

Stay tuned

 

I’m old enough to have a Medicare card

 

Yet I Lord also over a dozen websites on three hosting platforms.

 

I make my living in have done so from e-commerce for 15 years.

 

Have 400,000 social media followers because of my expertise in captive bird husbandry.

 

I still have a thirst to learn something new every day.

 

My day gig is WindyCityParrot.com, which has been around since New Year’s Eve 2002 when my wife Catherine launched it.

 

Since then I’ve built dozens, maybe a hundred or more websites.

 

You get the picture. I know e-commerce.

 

3 WordPress hosts – reviewed 

For a convoluted set of reasons, our current eCommerce platform is a hybrid WordPress/Zen Cart.

 

This combination is not working on a number of levels especially for SEO.

 

There are many reasons for it but I’ve suspected several which I’ve recently confirmed.
