I host my PHP website on shared hosting.
It's worked well for a year.
All of a sudden last week it started to randomly drop images, sometimes does not load the CSS file, and often gets 503 errors.
My provider says it is "too much traffic".
But since this has started to happen, traffic has gone down considerably of course, and it is still happening, that "heavy traffic" is the cause I find a bit illogical since if it is caused by heavy traffic, less traffic would solve the problem.
Here are 16 screenshots showing this random image dropping from the site throughout the day. http://tanguay.info/web/external/tinfoLoadingErrors.jpg (450K .jpg)
I've copied my site to another Apache/PHP server and it loads fine every time.
For those of you with experience hosting Apache/PHP site:
- what would you consider to be likely causes of random image dropping, etc.?
- what kinds of things can I ask my provider to check?
- what kinds of things could I check to find the cause of this problem (e.g. log files, create a test site of some kind, etc.)
