So is the wordpress database in a cloud server or actual server? And if my host makes backups i'll check up on that but if they do, and if the wordress server crashes, my files should be okay right? Just bringing up worst case scenario....

That depends on your hosting service. Most of the time all your files are on an actual server at your hosting company, they are held the database is held in a separate system to the one where your core wordpress files are. If you backup everything regularly you'll be ok, most hosts will have a backup stored of up to seven days which they can roll back to if you have problems. You'll need to check with your host to see exactly what their time scale is.

Hi,

 

Not sure what you mean by .html files, Wordpress doesn't use .html files?

Error 406 is caused by the server. Probably mis configured mod_security. Contact your host.

It's definitely a server issue. See the area at the bottom of this link:  http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E406.html

 

This is a most unusual error, and isn't about WordPress or PageLines.  It's simply about the configuration of the server, and the responsibility of your host. Presently, it's displaying that error.

Thanks Guys. Thanks Rob.... My host is admitting that its there problem and that there currently working on it. Alot of people are having the same problem. Heres what they said...

 

We are currently aware that a small portion of our customers are receiving Internal Server Error after login to the admin page. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we resolve this issue.

 

Im Hoping i didn't make a mistake working with iPage... I saw they were ranked pretty well and there pretty cheap that's why I decided to host with them...

Wait I dont understand? so whats so bad about people sharing the same ip? and your telling me that expensive hosting companies like GoDaddy gives everybody an individual ip address?

Godaddy is hardly expensive hosting ;) They do offer dedicated IP's if you want them though.

 

Heres a couple of examples of why 1000 other people sharing an IP is bad:

 

Email can get get blacklisted by IP, so if one of those sites gets blacklisted you all do.

 

Sites with API's like twitter/facebook etc rate limit by IP, so again you can be blocked because of someone else's abuse.

When a server has reached a certain limit of people accessing websites on a specific IP address, the server is at grave risk of failing to deliver resources to the sites or even crashing completely.  Usually, that limit is 600, but depending on the hosting company's server structure, it can be a little more.

 

Inexpensive hosting, unfortunately, gives what you pay for it, and WordPress has certain requirements that many such hosts cannot provide because the place too many clients on a single server (IP). The thing to do is to move to a VPS account.  There are inexpensive VPS accounts out there, where the resources are more dedicated to your account, and thus safer from such events.

Ho Damn..... I appreciate the inside info. Can I change my host company if I want and transfer everything over? and how can I back up all my files that I have used to make my website? Is that possible?

VPS huh? what does VPS stand for. And a VPS account gives you your own i.p. address is that correct? Is it too late for me to transfer over?

I wouldnt suggest a VPS.

 

Theres a few suggestions in this post: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/23700-which-hosting-is-best/

 

You can always download your site files/database etc. I have no idea what 'tools' ipage provide.

 

Cheap < $10 a month hosts seem great on paper but they suck at support as they have 10000's of customers to deal with. and usually most of the problems are due to server

restrictions and security because of the amount of people sharing it.

I see. This is very very new to to me very insightful. Good Stuff.... I'm really pasionet so this stuff is pretty interesting. Okay so if I go to my hosting then i can download the files from there huh? I was also wondering where pagelines stores the html file? because I was looking for it in my root directory i saw the index.php but it isnt the html that laid out my website. So Im confused about that because thats the file I really want to backup.

WordPress stores everything in the database. Your pages are dynamically served to the end user. There is no html files.

Your host *should* make backups anyway.

 

When you create a page/post in WordPress it just adds an entry into the database, no files are ever created. Unless you add an image, but thats different.

You can backup your db in settings>tools and backup your pagelines settings in Pagelines>dashboard>import/export to be safe and keep a copy of each
