Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Site Problems

Over the last few days, it’s possible that you might have tried to visit this site and gotten a blank page. It’s not you, it’s me. Or more precisely, it’s my server, and my attempts to eek a little more performance out of it.

The problem seems to come from APC (Alternative PHP Cache). I’m not absolutely sure why it decides to crap out on me like that, but I suspect that the real root of the problem might be some old supporting libraries on this server that need to be updated. I might try fiddling with the APC configuration again later, but in the mean-time, I’ve disabled it again. Over the past week, I’ve probably only gotten a little more than half of the hits that I might of had otherwise, so I’ll probably wait for another quiet period before I try enabling it again.
