Old WordPress blogs don’t seem to age gracefully

December 22, 2006

Apologies to those who were unable to leave a comment here at duncanriley.com over the last 2 days, it would appear as though the site gained a db corruption that needed a quick repair. Odd thing is though, I’ve noticed other blogs I help people out with, or a few oldies I still have, all seem to eventually experience a similar issue in one form or another. db corruptions seem to be par for the course in aged WP blogs as opposed to the exception. I say aged because I’m not sure if it’s a usage/ content point that results in db issues or literal age, perhaps in the same way that an aged install of Windows XP often starts behaving oddly. If anyone is having any similar issues leave a note, and I can compile them and send them to the WordPress people to consider.
