Yay - back on blogspot. ;)
Regular readers will know that we had some problems with our previous paid hosts when our Drupal installation was suffering from high CPU load after they 'upgraded' their version of PHP & mySQL. They were threatening to kick us off unless we stopped - which we couldn't. It had worked fine under the server env they originally gave us and borked in the 'new upgraded' version they moved us to. To cut a long story short we fled and Shepy offered us hosting on a server he has on the understanding as long as we didn't get to resource hungry we could stay.
Well we got too resource hungry for Shepy's server and have brought it down frequently recently. Sorry Shepy! :/
So where does that leave New Links? I was ready to throw in the towel totally as most of our lazy posters aren't erm.. posting. Posting was coming from ILN, Merg and me and that was about it. However I was slowly changing my mind as we were getting some new posters and Bungers even posted a nice HDTV post after we threatened to publish some pictures we have. Probably.
The upshot is I've found hosts who are Drupal specialists though we will be paying much more than the $4/mo we paid our previous hosts and the zilch that we pay Shepy. The cost isn't too much of a problem as our AdSense will probably just about cover it. The issue is whether it's worth it? Basically we need to sign up for a not very cheap hosting account and transfer the site. There is no point doing this if we are going to have no new posts. I'll have wasted my time and our money. So what do we do chaps?
