The dangers of having a weblog and podcast that have some traction bit me today. The webserver box was starting to run away earlier today. I logged in and the server load was over 20. I turned the WP-Cache plugin back on. I had tried it before and don’t remember exactly why I turned it off a while ago. It might have had to do with the dynamic referrals list or something like that. I think I might see about only caching the RSS and not anything else. That might be sufficient to keep the box from getting so hammered.
