Dedicated Hardware - Performance Boost!

Author Dedicated Hardware - Performance Boost!
Muff Wiggler
Great news - I've just completed moving all our databases over to a dedicated server, with hardware that has been heavily optimized for running mySQL only. (we've used a shared server in the past)

Immediately I'm noticing a performance increase.

In the next few hours I'll be moving the web code onto dedicated hardware as well, switching the webserver from Apache to lighttpd, and enabling php XCache, mod_php and mod_fcgid (FastCGI for PHP)

This should bring us even greater performance.

I know we haven't had server overload errors or any other issues, however I have noticed some lag when a lot of users are on the forum. This is pretty much gone now with the dedicated mySQL hardware, and the move to dedicated web hardware, a lightweight web server, and php enhancements and caching will make an even bigger difference.

I hope you all enjoy. This is costing me some money and a fair bit of sweat as well!

I know some people are experiencing 404 errors - DNS has changed and must repropigate. Don't panic!

What paypal address do we use for donations? w00t love we're not worthy 8_)
Muff Wiggler
you are very sweet and I appreciate it! but please no donations

could you imagine the ugliness when we get crap like that Plan B thread

Perhaps a member who donated doesn't like it and that complicates matters

or perhaps Peter G decrees that all sponsoring members will have their for-repair modules held ransom for supporting my nasty site


etc


it's a great idea and I *really* appreciate it, but it's a can of worms I don't want to open!

cheers
