I’ve depolyed my first RoR site, on textdrive, shared server. I was so
happy! my first site is up. A new baby born.
There’s barely any traffic to my site (I currently have 130 users).
However it seems that every time I point my browser to my site I find
myself praying that it will actually be online. And I’m not even a
so about 75% of the times it’s there and 25% I get a timeout, and it
makes me very mad. I submit a ticket and get some random answer like
“sorry, somebody on your server deleted their log files so we had to
restart the web server, etc…”. I understand that shit happens, and
that I only paid for a shared server but is it too much to ask to have
my site ONLINE almost all the time?? I don’t even talk about speed here.
After all the setup and work I done on their server I now need to find a
new hosting company and go through the whole deal again. And maybe the
new host will be bad too…
advice is very welcomed and appreciated.
