    Am I causing downtime?

    I have this new image gallery software installed on my site:

    http://kiekjes.sjeezer.com/

    I think it uses /tmp on the server whenever I upload some images. I've been using it since last month, so I was wondering... Is it possible that this software is causing those "DoS attacks"? What if there are other users that don't know enough about their software, just like me?

    :cold:

    Would Aletia be to blame or the one not even knowing? I'm sure they should prevent us from doing things like that, that's what hosting people do for a living, right?

    Hi, welll... i don't know that gallery software, but I think the problems related to the DoS attacks were made by people outside the server.. I Mean... Someone sending ALOT of packets to the server.. This causes the server to become slow or even crash.
