I’d thought this site was a bit sluggish, it’s a WordPress site with quite a few plugins as I often like to play with new WordPress stuff. I’m now running a Splunk server at home, again, mainly for testing and development for a new project for one of my clients. One of Splunks Apps is a web site monitor and I decided to give it a go.
As you can see from the image above my blog was hitting the red slow response time all the time. It was time to remove some old pluggins, anything that was not being used. The after was a lot better and pages come it smother now. Some pluggins can be like toolbars, often not needed and they just slow things down.

I am not a great fan of sites that say you cannot delete your account details – WordPress suggest leaving it dormant but that really isn’t a great solution. What happens if your account is hijacked ? At least if you can delete your account then you know you are safe.
If you’re wondering why I wanted to delete my WordPress account ? Well it seems I have two accounts – not sure how I managed to pick up the second one but I no longer want or need it but it will now forever live on in the interwebs…..

Very simple just ssh in and run the following
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www
or if you are on OS X (tested on Yosemite)
sudo chown -R _www:_www /var/www

Well it looks like spambots have been busy on my site with over 1000 users registered in the last day. Not sure what they are trying to achieve but thankfully they will be automatically removed by using http://wordpress.org/plugins/user-spam-remover/

Firefox is above average, no surprise.
IE is down a bit.
Chrome continues to rise.
Who cares what browser you use as long as it works for you 🙂
