I’ve had my website with a hosting company on a shared
server for about a month.
I received notification last week of excessive resource
issues with my site. They detailed two
cron jobs causing problems, runjobs and refreshlinks. I removed those hoping to solve the problem. (I really miss runjobs… hard to make changes
to the template and reduce the jobqueue with only a couple of active users!)
I’m now being informed that I need to reduce resources
considerably or move to a dedicated server. The latter option is cost-prohibitive for me.
I’m wondering if other people have encountered this, and the
possible remedies. Is running SMW on a
shared server really impossible? I’m
using MediaWiki 1.15.1 and SMW 1.4.2 with a variety of installed
extensions. I did remove two additional cron jobs, updatesearchindex and rebuildtextindex, not sure if that will help any.
