New Server!

January 20, 2013 18:23

Well, not yet. You're still on the old one. The new one has been purchased, loaded, and I've loaded all of the site data and programs are operating properly. I've also fixed one particularly NASTY bug which is in no small part one of the reasons for the new server anyway, but the old one was getting old, so it still seems like a good idea. I've changed the refresh frequency on the nameserver to 10 minutes so when I do finally swap over, there won't be any long delays in propogating. AT the moment I'm just testing all of the links and site functions to be sure everything is in order.

The new server benchmarks about 50 times fater than the old one. It will also have 4 times the ram and 5 times the HD space. I've also been able to install many of the libraries and software that was giving me endless frustration on the old one, so some of the new features I've been working on can actually WORK now. This has been a major bottleneck toward future projects, so hopefully I can start rolling new ones out in the next month or so. Stay tuned.
