Tongiht I turned up a new web server. Presently only a handful of domains are on it, eskimo.com, www.eskimo.com
, amasci.com, defender-games.net, ybbored.com, but these are heavy in traffic so that
represents about 85% of the total traffic. The new machine is much faster. If you move around this BBS you'll find it is much quicker than before.
This should spell an end to the problems of NFS hangs on the web as the new server uses NFSv4 which so far has been solid.
It also means we've now got a modern webserver, Apache 2.4.3, modern MySQL 5.1.66, and modern PHP 5.3.3 instead of the ancient stuff we had before so you can run modern versions of WordPress, Coppermine, phpBB, and other applications.
After we get all the domains moved over and it soaks for a while, I'll be adding SSL, Tomcat Java Servlets, and some other things.
