Remember when I said I had two new web sites to create, one was still born:

More info to come, but I wanted to make this space available for comments.

Sorry my site was down today.

I reauthorized comments the blog on Thursday after installing Hascash. Friday afternoon I was alerted that I had excessive growth in my error log. I attempted to correct the PHP Warning: ob_start(): output handler 'ob_gzhandler' cannot be used after 'URL-Rewriter' warning over the weekend but apparently did not completely fix it. I’ve since found the wordpress support document that details that Firefox doesn’t trigger the error.

Thus, today Potent Products, as detailed in their Terms of Serivce, has not tolerance for errors in your log file and make a habit of reading your log file. My website was shutdown and I was cut off from my E-Mail. I was able to negotiate a 24 hour reprieve and immediately placed the PHP command error_reporting(0); on the top of the offending page to suppress the warning (as it’s not an actual error and the site still works). I’ve since traced the problem to having wordpress’s bandwidth saving gzip function enabled and the hascash tool.

Thus I would recommend Potent Product’s web hosting to anyone who’s looking for a host who will shut their web site down before they consume 0.01MB of your alloted storage space within 48 hours. It’s good to know they’re there looking over your shoulder.
