Why is my website generating hundreds of Temporary Internet files?
Posted on 2006-11-25
My ISP has temporarily shut down one of my websites because it says that "the site was generating hundreds of Temporary Internet Files causing other sites on the shared server to run slowly".
Unfortunately they have given me no particular reasons as to why this has happened and I don't know where to start trying to trace what is causing this. One of their Tech chaps said it could very well be a scripting issue but couldn't be anymore specific than that!
My understanding was that Temporary Internet Files were generated when browsing rather than by the actual website itself - but it seems this is not the case.
Any advice on what sort of things I should be looking at, or whether there are any tools which could help me identify the problem would be hugely appreciated.
