“Perfect is the enemy of good”, a smart person said once. Another one said: “If it works, don’t mess with it.”
So, I messed with it. I was trying to make it perfect.
Over past couple of weeks, you might have experienced downtimes, or even errors such as 403 Access Forbidden or similar here on my blog. The reason is—I was trying to make it perfect, and now I see that good might have been good enough.
As a part of my blog reviving efforts, I’ve tried improving the performance. The blog was awfully slow, so I offloaded the static content to CDN and installed the W3 Total Cache plugin to help me improve my speed. Which it did. For a while.
Then it started behaving funny, and was intermittently and unpredictably throwing errors at my visitors, for which I sincerely apologize. You don’t deserve to be thrown errors at. Honestly.
So, I’ve switched the page caching off for the time being, while I try to sort it out. In the meanwhile, I ask my fellow bloggers, if you are using WordPress and W3 Total Cache, and have experienced something similar—please help.
