Hi everybody,

edit: the server move has been completed, we are now on a faster hosting package. hurray Thank you everybody who made this possible boogie

I just paid for the upgrade, so we are moving to a faster server any moment now. I don't know if there will be any downtime - but in case there is, consider this the notice.

DON'T PANIC ^^

edit: i've been informed the server has to be rebooted, this normally takes 20 minutes to an hour.

Q

I hope you dont take this bad, but i notice absolutely zero speed improvement... Actually it seems slower than on average for me now, and it takes over 20-30 seconds for index forum to respond and actually start loading.

Edit: Again it is the forum index that respond so slow, while normal threads load much faster..

And i dont have this problem with any other website... What happens is: Waiting for www.ld4all.com... it loads fast once it starts actually loading..

yes, i noticed that too and i dont know what causes it. I thought with the faster server this would belong to the past.

So i'm finding out why this is.

Q: perhaps on the old server there were some PHP/MySQL related tweaks/improvements that speeded up the index loading there? and those aren't on this one?

Also, is the server physically located in the same datacenter? if not, the speed differences may differ greatly per location a visitor comes from smile

For instance, if the server used to be located in the USA and now is located in the Netherlands, it may be a lot faster for the Dutchies, but could be lots slower for USA people.

But I assume you are still in the same center with the same provider, just on a server with higher specs smile
So then the possible solutions could be for instance be PHP/Apache/MySQL tweaks.

fix: it's the same center, and an upgraded package. I think i'm even still on the same box, but with the upgraded package. Since it is vitual private server, i have now more memory, cpu power and diskspace allocated.

the mysql/ etc tweaks should be exactly the same. I have noticed that at some times it can be very slow, at other times it is faster again.

There are more users on the server, if the load is low, LD4all get's all the available memory/cpu (of the whole computer). If the server is busy, then LD4all gets it's max allotted CPU/Memory . (that is now 2x what it was before).

If you know of any mysql tweaks i can add i'm all ears wink5

I'm also searching out a solution to archive older threads to free more space in the database.

I think that could explain it.. Maybe the box itself is overloaded with too many clients/virtual servers. Then it will be slow no matter how much memory is allocated and so on..

It does not seem very slow for me at the moment though.. Seems to vary a bit from day to day/time of day.
