Server outage 16. - 18. should be fixed now

Post by Mythrell » 18 Jan 2020, 14:54

Hello,

I think the forums were down from at least 16th day due to mysql server shutting down because it didn't have enough memory.

For whatever reason the virtual host this server is running seems to be running out of memory quite often. I've been meaning to move it to new virtual host with double the resources for a month, but it's always a bit of a hassle. Also it could be better to come up with some more permanent fix as like moving to other service.

Something to think about for sure, but for now things should run good again for a while.

Hmm I'm still receiving some SERVER 500 errors, I'm doing some checking to see if I can find the cause.

I have been looking into other solutions. Trying to find something that is easy to maintain, cheap and reliable. Of course hosted service is also one option. But then again we had our previous setup in hosted service and all that is gone

For it I need data from current forum so I can test importing it.

Our previous forum location was on FreeForums.org which had several issues like it was pretty slow and it ran ads on non-admin users. Some of those ads just straight downloaded files on your computer or otherwise triggered browser protections.. ie it was not good, but that comes with being "free".

I'm fairly certain any paid service would be good compared to that.

I can send you a mysql database dump Jarik, that will include all the phpBB data.

Also, Blood Bowl 7's seems like a great format, it's just it takes a bit too much time to run a normal BB game for me :(
