Site going down for maintenance

Postby Phade » Thu Mar 04, 2004 9:18 pm

Hey,

The site will be going down for a little bit for some maintenance. We're going to move the database to what will be the new home of the site. We're going from a dual Xeon w/512M RAM box to a dual Opteron w/8G RAM. That should help with site performance.

Downtime should be minimal (hopefully). We will need to shove the database over, re-point the database connection, and then restart. I'll let you know when we're done.

Phade.

Hey,

Database move is now complete. Site move will now commence, but should be transparent.

Enjoy the new server

While it'll still probably need some tuning --- and we certainly need to tune the site code a lot --- this server should be much, much faster!

Have fun! And thank you everyone who has donated and paid for the new server.

That's great news, especially considering that the web server is in Texas and the database server is in Maryland! When they web server gets moved over, there should be even greater performance. :-)

for some reason http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/index.php does not currently work but http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/ does :P anyways. I can't wait for the entire move to complete. You can already see a difference.

I dropped something in the mod box about this...it's a cookie typing issue, a string is being generated where the current code wants a long int. The new server explains it, probably isn't 100% configured right yet.

May the login problems be solved soon. I want to see that 10 000th vid.

And congrats to Phade et. al. for reaching this benchmark, and innumerable thanks for making it possible. I really should donate. I'm such a leach... :oops: :roll:
