My host informed me that the website exceeded the allowed CPU usage limit. Hence they temporarily restricted access to the site. If this repeats, the ban could be permanent.

From the logs it seems the problem was likely caused by Mediawiki, the program I use for EC wiki. Until I figure out how to optimize it I will be partially disabling the wiki and removing all the links to it. In the meantime please refrain from clicking on the links within earlier posts and or visiting your bookmarked wiki pages.


(I still don't know the exact cause of this, so don't be alarmed if I suspend access to the forum in the next few days. In that case I'll be communicating through the old blog.)

A good approach to reduce CPU and database load when using Mediawiki is an external cache, like varnish.

I find it hard to believe that a wiki installation like yours (there's no way you're that popular :D) eats up that much resources though. You might want to spend some time carefully checking the logs, especially error logs. Bots going wild because of some old broken links is a problem I ran into several times - with sites a lot bigger than yours though.

Thanks a lot. I'm certainly not that popular. The logs the host let me see suggest that a couple users tried to access an abnormally high number of pages within a short period of time. I don't have the time to deal with it head on right now, so I restricted access as a temporary solution. After I'm done with the comic I will go for the cache option. The wiki is seldom updated so an external cache is the best option anyway.

Alternatively I could upgrade to a dedicated server, but I'm not sure if the revenue from the gift shop covers that extra cost.

Are you sure that it is not the forum? I sometimes open 10-15 pages simultaneously :oops:

anyway I hope you can manage it, because I love this forum :D :D

I'm also hoping for some news on this. There's a few things I want to look up as well.

I'd love to help figure this out, if it's still an issue. Hey: I believe in the cause. <3

Any chance of the wiki being accessable again

I will look into it next week. If I can manage to solve the problem, it will be back on.

For the life of me, I cannot find any problem with the code. It is rather messy, and I know very little about the mechanics of the host's servers. If the Gift Shop makes enough money I will upgrade to a better package. Hopefully that will solve the quota problem.
