Recent Downtime

Recommended Posts

I'm very sorry for the many hours which TRiBot was down today. I was making some substantial improvements to the server and I deleted something which I shouldn't have, sending the server into a whirlwind. It took a few hours to fix it, but it's back!

The improvement I mentioned was that we moved from the ancient Apache to LiteSpeed Web Server, which uses about half the CPU, a lot less RAM, has been designed for high concurrency, is more stable such that the web server won't go down again unless I delete an important file, and has more security features.

I'm giving all current VIP members an extra day to compensate them for their short loss.

Much, much more changes to come this late year!

CPU seems about the same or more but I could just be being paranoid here. Should I increase the paint delay?

I thought he was talking about the website but could be wrong.

@TRiLeZ

What part of Canada are you from?

Southern AB.

I should also mention that we now fully support HTTP/2 and have been at least partially for quite some time.

I'll also let you guys know of a small tidbit - I'm planning on making the servers auto-scalable both horizontally and vertically, depending on the server load. Instead of using a single boated server utilizing cPanel/WHM, apache2 LiteSpeed Web Server, memcached, and a bunch of other software which is just too much, we'll be using much more secure servers running the bare minimum to keep them fast, efficient, safe, reliable, and robust. He may even gear away from using PHP if we're able to run IPBoard 4 in some other language (if not, then an upgrade to PHP 7 will be a good boost). That's not even the half of what we are working on, solely in terms of network administration.

And no, this still isn't the big news which everyone has been waiting for.
