I have a website that is down at the moment because of the following message from Dreamhost:
Traffic to your site was causing instability on the entire machine. I’m sure you can understand why we cannot allow this is a shared hosting environment. Once the traffic to your site decreases, we will consider reenabling the domain.
We have a wiki article that can help you determine the cause of your usage spike:
Most of the above wiki article flies way over my head.
If someone out there understands “shells” and ‘PuTTY” and things of that nature and can help resolve whatever the issue that is causing the problem I’d appreciate hearing from you. The extensive gratitude of hundred or thousands of readers and maybe a small payment of some kind could be arranged.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you might be of service.
Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.
UPDATE: We’re working on the problem now. Hopefully there will be a fairly quick resolution. Stay tuned!
Thanks to those who responded.
