CoolSmartPhone Server Update

CoolSmartPhone Server Update A quick thank-you to the guys at Spoonydunappa for helping me get CoolSmartPhone.com back online today. We were hit by a double-blow this weekend. Firstly we had several thousand IP’s trying to grab a rather large file from our downloads area directly. This spiked out bandwidth dramatically and caused huge amounts of traffic. Secondly, our CPU was being hammered and was bouncing around 99.9% utilization purely because some clever person has found a way to “call” a script in a certain way, which caused a loop within MySQL and hundreds of thousands of queries every few minutes.


I’d personally like to thank Paul @ Spoonydunappa for sorting out the coding issue for me. Many thanks mate!


Apologies for the slow speeds, lack of news stories and downtime this weekend and today.
