I should have hosted this site on one of my dedicated servers instead of using my Media Temple grid account. I’ve got a reseller account with them, so I thought why not use my credits? Bad idea!
Their shared Mysql servers are slower than maple syrup on a frosty morning, plus my support ticket has gone unanswered since I opened it early this morning. Media Temple used to be a stable and reliable hosting company.
I’m beginning to have my doubts after reading all of the other horror stories regarding database issues at Media Temple on the web. Seems this problem had been around for quite some time. Hmmm?
