    Cyburbia's new server

    if you can see this post, you're viewing Cyburbia on its new server, and DNS propagation made it your way. We're still hosted at Liquid Web in Lansing, Michigan. As expected, they've provided excellent technical support though the migration process.

    There's still some work to do this week, though. Server optimization, maybe setting up memcache.

    I'll send out an email to all active Cyburbia users once the tweaks are in place, and the server is humming along.

    Looking Good - Thank You Dan in keeping Cyburbia up and running for us.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Something's going on, and I don't know what. I'm at work, so I can't do too much now.

    Mail to any cyburbia.org account will disappear. Any mail sent to cyburbia.org after Saturday vanished.

    Please do not send me email. I won't get it.

    Trouble ticket in.

    Trying database repairs. Things might be slow going.

    Yeah, yesterday it was flying. Today it's back to being slow.

    Emptying the search database. Searching will be off-line until tonight, when it's slow and I can reindex the site.

    Seems to be working faster on my end.

    I can't wait until all the kinks are worked out. I'll then be able to mail all the members, and tell them things are back to normal. Activity here dropped a lot in the past month.

    It has vastly increased functionality. But I worry, does it make me look fat?

    No. Big props to Liquid Web. They've done a lot to help me get this thing running.

    Still rebuilding the search engine, so things might be on the slow side for a couple more hours.

    I think we might have a stable server, albeit not completely tweaked yet. The server load was a little bit high during reindexing, but that's normal, and there were no timeouts or major slowdowns. Server load was under 1 through the night.

    Email to Cyburbia's active memberbase goes out on Monday, provided there's no other difficulties.

    Seemed to run fast through lunch, although it hasn't been as busy lately. Slow performance might have scared some people off. Hopefully they'll make their way back. Overall traffic is about the same; it's just that member activity is down.

    Well, the new server appears to be fast and stable.

    Just sent out mail to Cyburbia members who visited the site in the past two months, letting them know about the new server.

    Had to empty the search table again. I'll be rebuilding it tonight.

    Regenerating some database tables. Things might be a bit slow for about half an hour.

    Reindexing the search engine. Should be done within the hour.

    Had a problem where error messages appeared when new threads were started in some forums. These were forums where new posts were sent out to Twitter. It's related to the Twitter plugin, bit.ly domain shortening, and a quirk of how PHP operates on the new server. Fixed for now by using is.gd instead of bit.ly for now.

    Next up, and not really server-related: 404 pages. Before vBulletin 4, we had them. Now, it's just a generic 404.

    "What was wrong with the server just now?", you ask. Nothing. Just the usual Friday night archival backup.
