Short down-time experience

Our blog had a short amount of down time recently, due to an error on the server. To get technical, a few uncleaned caches resulted in the /var partition filling up, leaving the mysql server without enough space to operate. Thus, the blog, which using WordPress on Apache2 and stores it’s data in a MySQL database, could not load this data. The offending caches have been removed, and the mysql and apache services restarted. Everything is now running normally. A few changes should result in this not happening again.
