I have run out of bandwidth for the images

I regret the incident, but the fact that the post of the beaches of Panama has been published in Menéame has caused the allocated bandwidth to be exceeded.

I have sent an email to the supplier, but since it is still Sunday, Mother's Day and it's hot as hell ... he's probably with a couple of girls in a pool.

I hope it will be resolved soon :(.

Incidentally, I tell you that a while ago I decided to store the images in a separate hosting to not cause this traffic problem to Cartesians and I take the opportunity to tell them how to do it with Live Writter.

Create the FTP

This is done on the site that is being paid, usually in ftp manager, a new ftp account is created, where the username and password are defined

In my case, before someone came forward I acquired and although I have not set up a site yet, I have the images stored there; This is stored in cpanel with a special price of To create the account in cpanel it is done in this way:

"ftp manager / ftp accounts / ad ftp account"

Then a "Login, Password, Quota, Directory" is assigned. The latter is the folder where the images will be stored, if not assigned they will go to publichtml, which is not very good.

Set up the Live Writter account

This is done in "tools / accounts"

Then the account is chosen and the "edit" button is pressed there the destination address is configured in this panel in this way:

image as ftp host

The user, who goes in the form

and the password that we defined above is placed

Finally, a folder is chosen where the images will be stored, so you can be posting to one site but have your images stored in another.

  1. Thanks for the XuRxo data, I think I'm going to consider it because even though they doubled the width a few days ago ... I already ate it again and as you said, if the site is producing, the idea of ​​Flickr is not bad because it hardly comes out $ 2 per month and that will give me a chance to upload videos that for this reason I had not considered.

    invaluable help ... now I have the challenge if there is any way to route the src of the images to Flickr

  2. If the photos or images do not have "legal" problems, you can use flickr. A "pro" account costs about $25 a year and you have unlimited width to upload photos and videos, organize them in a thousand ways and in my opinion it's definitely worth it. And of course there is no download limit.

    Anyway, my two cents as they say….

  3. Now you can use this additional space in conjunction with your server. I hope that soon we will not have just limitations of bandwidth and storage.

  4. thanks Tomas, although it was not Cartesian problem but which is where the images of a time are stored here.

    it was necessary to offer more before the well-known speech


  5. I have increased your ability to upload images in to double the previous one.
