Typo on Textdrive

Is anyone running Typo on Textdrive? The damn thing keeps dying on me
and I
just got a slap on the wrist for setting up a cron job that was running
a
bash script that checked if it was running and relaunched if necessary.

If you aren’t on Textdrive are there any Typo friendly hosts?

The good news is that I¹m on TxD(nicola) and running typo
The bad news for you is that it is highly customized

Btw I too have a cron job checking to see if life is good … How often
did
you have yours set to run?

I’m in a similar boat; things were good for a while, but now they’re
intolerable. Lots of 500s, lots of restarts. Typo is just too beefy
to run on TextDrive in its current state. (In fact, I’m off writing a
minimal personal personal publishing platform; I’d like something that
fits in 5Mb of memory instead of 50Mb.)

DreamHost looks better, but YMMV.

@Dreamhost

We see lots of 500s on Typo unless you rewrite the dispatcher to
ignore the requests to stop :wink:

It’s an alright host… they have been having tons of network
problems but they’re very open about it.

For toy sites and/or personal blogs, they can be cool… plus their
diskspace + bandwidth for the price is tough to beat anywhere else.
Lots of features for a shared host.

I did a little write up on this. The main memory hog is “sparklines”
because of its dependency on RMagick. Removing the text filter for
sparklines should do the trick.

Also since patching RubyGems I have had wonderfully stable processes on
TxD. My typo blog has gone for than a month without a restart. You
will
want to prune the log files once in a while though. “truncate -s -100M
*.log” in the /log directory is nice for that.

We are using it, but not within the out of the box Typo. We have added
SNA and use it to show the qactivity of connections

Ah… sparklines. There’s a feature that’s driven more painful changes
in Typo than almost anything.

Does anyone actually use it?

Ah.
If this is what I think it is then I’ve been having a similar problem on
Dreamhost. The public/dispatch.fcgi doesn’t seem to want to re-start
reliably. That’s with the patch described at
