Friday Morning Server Craziness - Update: Saturday Afternoon Reboot
Yep, we know there’s something weird going on with the servers and we’re working on it with our host. In the meantime, here’s a new thread to check things out with…
It looks like we’re going to need a new database server, and that’s currently in the works. The switch-over will take place this evening, and in the meantime I’ve had to turn off commenting because it’s not working reliably and I don’t want anyone else to lose comments.
Sorry for the inconvenience! This has been the week from hell for our servers.
The new server is set up at last, the database has been exported and imported into the new instance of MySQL, and we’re on final approach to reboot. It’s a dual quad-core box with HT (hyper-threading), 12 gigabytes of RAM, and 2 1TB hard drives. Much faster and a lot more memory and storage space than the old server, which was at least 4 years old.
Just a few loose ends left to tie up.
