Server Move Complete!

By Cat333Pokémon on March 12, 2010

It's been an antagonizing two months, but we finally moved away from Fivebean's evil clutches! Our new host is VPS.NET, a cloud node-based service where you buy as much as you need and can even buy nodes for a day or two when traffic gets crazy. As the DNS updates and the server becomes accessible again, the forum should be finally tested to see how it handles on the new server.

Speaking of the new server, this one, surprisingly, has significantly less resources than the last server. However, what sets this one apart is that we get them--ONLY we get them. No other VPSes on the same physical server are allowed to touch our CPU share or RAM. We also have virtual memory now. :D If the site starts lagging, that means one of several things: the site is under heavy traffic, backups are running, or we're doing maintenance. It no longer should go down for absolutely no reason.

Please report all errors that you receive with these exceptions:
  • Achamo~Torchic's site not working. (This site was erased. :( )
  • Mooshykris.net or SHiNKiROU.org still showing the moving notice. (These may have not yet updated their DNS.)
  • 404s on stuff you know does not exist
  • Browser crashing for no reason
  • [*]The Pokédex (which still is not officially released)

Of course, if any layouts look broken, please let us know.




By Cat333Pokémon on March 11, 2010

Well, the move failed and we lost a bit of time and some files because ispCP messed up and caused a synchronization issue. Some sites may have suffered losses. It also happens that the backups wound up failing the night before...all of them. (If you don't believe me, I've got about a dozen error report e-mails in my inbox dated March 10 at 3:15 AM Pacific.)

The following sites are affected by deleted files:
Achamo~Torchic (may have received the greatest loss, please re-upload ASAP)
Crystal Islands (a couple files)

In addition, pretty much all sites have that "default homepage" file in the root. If you have that, PLEASE UPLOAD A FIXED PAGE and/or delete index.html.

However, do not worry about databases. Those are all fine.



Staff Activity Reports 2

By James on March 9, 2010

Ok, this is the 2nd staff activity report to find out which members of the staff are active and inactive. Note: This will be a week- two week long process 'cause most of us all go to school and its sometimes hard to go on the computer.So once again if you are a mod and active post something like, "______ reporting in as active" or anything to show you are active on the site. There may be at the least, 1 mod inactive. So I will be checking back here daily for 2 weeks.

JAMES reporting in as active:ugeek:
