New server

#1 Post by Administrator » Tue Sep 02, 2014 2:55 pm

Sorry about the downtime. Transferring everything over to a new server took longer than expected as everything that could possibly go wrong, did. Uploading backups failed, DNS failed to propagate properly, Cloudflare went down for awhile and then failed to follow the given configurations, Laravel did not want to play nicely with the software, and the list goes on.

Anyways, all done for now. Unfortunately, I won't be able to roll-out those updates for the main website just yet. The good news is that the new server responds much more quickly and so navigating the site should be much more snappy. The main page renders about 2.5x faster! Once PHP is updated to 5.4, the main page will receive another update to improve visuals as well as functionality.

What's been going on the last couple of days?

At first pages seemed to load fast enough but the last couple of days it quite often takes 10-30s to load pages. And occasionally I get "This board is currently disabled" at the top of the page. Or is it just me?

Shared hosting can be a pain. Some other user(s) on the same server have some misconfigured/abussive scripts that are pegging out the CPU on occasion. Working on resolving that now.

For the time being, I've disabled the forum auto-disable on high load. Pages might occasionally load slowly, but at least it shouldn't be completely unavailable.

I use APC (http://php.net/manual/de/book.apc.php) but I think the zend optimizer did take over its function since PHP 5.4 which alone make the page loading 2-3x faster.(It is a bytecode buffer) I got the same amount again with https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/ which removes unnecessary letters from the HTML code, compressed JPEG's picture in previews and optimized the use of css.

I appreciate it, but it wouldn't have helped in this case. The server was being overworked, causing delays between when the server would even get a timeslice, so before it could even pass it off to PHP.

The problematic user(s) have been removed and things should be running smoothly again for now.
