    Recently we have been experiencing high load on our server do to massive amounts of traffic. To remedy this we have purchased a new, more powerful server, which is awesome. It will be more than able to handle the load.

    Things will be transferred over within the next couple of days. (probably at night) You may experience some downtime when the switch is done and things propagate.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Just out of curiousity, how many visits does CPF average a month? Also, how much more traffic can these new servers handle?

    I'm all about web development and related topics, so successful sites like CPF always tickle my fancy LOL

    Re: We're Just too popular! - Server Outages

    I'm still working on things and the site isn't on the new server yet. Have run into some snags setting the new stuff up.

    The new server should be able to handle about triple the traffic. It's a dual xeon 3.2 with 2 73gb SCSI drives and 2gb ram running RHE 4. It's also almost double the price of the older, current machine.

    I rather not give out exact numbers, but I'll say that it's enough to need a heafty dual processor machine

    I forgot to ask this before, but what are you planning on doing with the old Server....? Sell it, use it, give it away to one of your trusty Moderators????....LOL
