Hostmerit has screwed me again. They have let the /tmp volume fill up. This impacts mySQL and the user logs. ScienceFictional.com, FreeNameAStar.com and a few other sites are down. My plan was to get rid of 1and1.com hosting. Now, I am slowly moving my websites back there.
Hosting, no matter who handles it, is a nightmare.
When I hit the lotto, the first thing I’ll do is rent a T1 line directly into my basement and host it all myself.
