Server hardware upgrade some time this weekend.
« on: October 05, 2012, 01:00:34 PM »
Server hardware upgrade some time this weekend.
we are increasing from 4 processors to 8 and and to better hard drives, and the newest linux os and server drivers.
this should fix a problem we have been having for about 2 weeks, a slow down that comes and goes, for no reason. Hence the entire upgrade to new/better every thing. If the upgrade day changes I will let you know.
Time will tell.

He be da Hero.  He fix stuff.  You know like serbers and stuff like that.  Got no idee where he come frum.


I just came back to modify this.  I just realized that I am a Hero Member too but, I cannot tell you why.  In the past, I always sat on the curb and applauded as the heros marched bye.  Hmm?

You mean it doesn't have anything to do with your avatar picture thing?  I thought the horses were the reason I was a hero.   ???

Did the server upgrade happen?  The site seems to be faster but, there are probably not many people on their computers today.  They are celebrating Columbus Day, you know carving pumpkins, hiding the colored eggs and wrapping gifts.   ;D

I've never been a hero at anything before so, I'm not going to tell you to turn it off.  As long as you don't have Mayor, State Representative, Senator, Congressman, Vice President or, heaven forbit, "President" it's not an insult.   ;D  CG

All the "Hero Members" have a lot more posts than you and me, phil-billy. Maybe we will make it some day.

I understand. Was not looking for accolades.  Was just curious is all. I try to post things that I think are interesting, when I find them.

Server move has been completed, it was a long and messy job.
thanks for your patients, you should see an improvement on the server response times.
thanks

I wouldn't have thought it would be that bad. Thanks for your efforts.

We moved all our customers not just the forum, off a dying server, A fresh install (os, drivers, etc) was done and the customers data was moved over from each account. all the server settings have to be tweaked back to where I had them. there is a small window to move stuff over, customers want their stuff up and running 100% of the time.
It was not that bad for me, but my techs, they had most the server headaches, I get the customer headaches. :)

we are still finding little things that we need to move or change.
Time will tell.
