Down for the Count

Tags: Uncategorized

Anyone who frequents my site has probably noticed that the site seems to go down more than a little bit. Sometimes I notice it, but other times I’m notified by someone else. This sucks, and for a site as (relatively) small and simple as mine, downtime shouldn’t happen that often. Unfortunately, Tomcat has been crapping out on me (randomly) from day one, and while I’ve tried a couple of things to fix this, none have taken.

So, now my latest theory: the WARP Connector that connects Apache to Tomcat is f’ed. Why do I think this? No great reason, but it’s time to try something, so I’ve switched out WARP, and plugged in mod_jk (the AJP13 connector). We’ll try this for a week, and see what happens. Wish me luck.
