Server Move

17 posts in this topic

Today we've moved to a new server. This means there could be a few niggles and such.

 

If you come across anything strange, a time and date, the error you received along with a screenshot would be great (or what you can do of that.)

 

Also general feedback on how you find the speed of the site. Might be worth remembering it could be a little slower to start with as everyone floods back as we've been down.

 

Cheers.

It's probably nothing but this post took about a minute to process:

In the past for me I would get the little loading bar for up to about 15 seconds then it would briefly say saving and post. It seemed to take a lot longer with this post than normal(loading bar for 15-20 secs then saving for 30 or so), but could well be a one off. Post time was 15:39

 

It also happened around 16:22/3 when replying to DX115FALCON's status

 

Also one of the posts on the first page of that thread has gone outside of the borders and caused the scaling to go a bit funny, not sure if it was like that before the move though. I can post a pic if it is just me seeing it.

 

That said all the pages are loading for me really fast over the last hour or so.

Saving posts is still taking a long time for me.

My initial thoughts were that it was probably the database causing things to hang up. I've been trawling through the logs and found evidence of a crashed database, which I've repaired, but not sure this is going to be the fix as that's the only error I found. Let me know..

 

Edit: Well that took ages to post so I'll keep looking :P but let me know if you notice any difference.

Right I've been playing around for quite a while now (understatement), investigating and trying various things and I'm not noticing the hanging now, but I may have just been lucky. Please can you let me know if you get any hang ups? We're talking like over 5 seconds for a post/PM or whatever to go through assuming your internet connection is good, reliable and stable.

I'm not getting email notifications of new posts currently - haven't changed anything. My guess is for a couple of hours.

Have you checked to see if they are going in your spam folder? I'm trying to sort it out but unfortunately the things I need to take time to resolve (it's not a manual process).

The way that the forum sends mail by default is an easy option for spammers to use as well. I've switched to a secondary option where I can sign the mail so it has a better chance of getting through to the inbox. Unfortunately for whatever reason this system is currently backlogging the mail rather than sending it. I've fired off a support request so I'm hoping things should be normal soon.
