A New Era For This Site

My site started having issues on Monday night.  The load became enough to start crashing the shared web host that it was running on.  Using a content distribution network (CDN) was one option.  Another option was to move the site onto a dedicated virtual machine.  The latter would cost more, but it would give me the option to do a few more things.

So that’s what I’ve done.  The performance sucked this morning.  I added WinCache for PHP (this is a WordPress site), tuned FastCGI, and upgraded WordPress and the plugins … the problem went away.

The site appears to be running fine now.
