A usual custom of large Internet companies is to have an additional website, not hosted on the same server as the main one, where to report possible incidents with the main website .
, this is the idea of the new website status.wordpress.org where, in case the WordPress.org main server ever has problems, check the status of the website and updates to know when everything will work again.
As it is not hosted on the same WordPress.org servers, even if it had problems of some kind it could report them . Do not expect many updates on that website (in fact, better than not), because only a note will be published in case of a WordPress.org bug.
If you wish you can even subscribe to a mailing list where you will be notified of the problems that arise.
Let us know Matt who have suffered a important attack that has compromised WordPress.com servers at the level of "root" that is, super-administrator, or in other words someone has gone into the kitchen.
The bad thing about this irruption is that you do not know what the possible scope of it is, because when you enter that level you can access everything, absolutely everything, and nothing is certain you just depend on the intentions of the attacker.
Matt alleges that they are making changes to prevent this from happening again but the reality is that they have a delicate streak in security issues, we assume that at the server level.
I just hope that you can buttress WordPress.com to avoid compromising the incredible rise of this service, better and better.
It happens a lot, either when installing a plugin, updating WordPress or installing a module of a plugin, and the result you get is a message from …
After that you can not see your site or access the desktop of WordPress.
If you can not solve any of these options, it is best to increase the contracted memory of your server and, in the meantime, talk to your hosting provider to solve the problem even temporarily.
If you want to know how much server memory your WordPress consumes, do not stop trying the code proposed by Darío Ferrer . After testing, you can safely deactivate more than one plugin (or two).
The entry How much memory WordPress consumes was first published in WordPress Help .
CDmon so that we will stop using Mediatemple for WordPress Help (not so for other sites that give me fewer headaches), and in the process we gain speed, technical support (I will not have to deal with the server anymore) and , consequently, time to publish more and better.
Forum and the test sites we have: themes, wordpress 2.7, wordpress 2.6 and habari . The part that I think will be more complicated is that of the forum, because there I am quite green and I do not know if I will do a scam, which I hope not. In WordPress Help I'm going to take advantage of the migration to tweak the database – which I had been asking for some time -, delete plugins that we tested in their day and no longer use or are not necessary for posts, and some more than I'll tell you.
However, I will warn when we are on the new server, and from there I will ask you to send me a cable to know if everything is fine, if you have missed any comments or those things that may happen in the migrations, and more This one is of quite volume and characteristics of it. I just hope that this is the last migration (it's already the second one in less than a year), and that from now on this issue of resources will no longer be a concern and lack of sleep for me, and that WordPress Help will go as a shot, with what you all win.

There are times when the host where our blog goes down or there are errors in the database or in the DNS of the domain . Errors that can be repaired, but only if we notice on time or if someone notifies us in time of it. For our luck there is ServerMojo a great service that will check every certain state of our server. We can ask ServerMojo to monitor our database, or our DNS, or our server or even a specific page of our blog.
The service is quite simple and will notify us by mail, Twitter or IM if it detects that something is not working as it should, and so we can solve it more quickly.
Of course, there are also more options: BasicState Ezine Monitor ] Montastic and many more. It is only a question that you find your ideal service and begin to know the times that your server falls and leaves without access to all your visits …
