I finally made the switch to our new webserver (that was threatened a couple of times over the past couple of weeks, but I ran into a variety of hurdles related to the age and complexity of the old deployment and the fact that we’re moving to an all new infrastructure based on Cloudmin and Cloudmin Services, in addition to Virtualmin).
The only difference you should notice is that everything is just a whole lot faster. The virtual machine it runs on has significantly more resources with which to work (twice the RAM, four times the disks on a much better dedicated controller, twice the number of CPU cores, etc.), and some of the work has been offloaded to other systems via Cloudmin Services.
But, there may be problems that my testing didn’t shake out. I, obviously want to know about them, so if you see any new problems with the website, let me know in the ticket tracker. I hope a couple of known issues will also be resolved by the new server, as well, such as the occasional “Your message has been queued for moderation” problem, but I’m not certain of that…it might just be a bug, rather than a timeout issue.
Anyway, sorry for the sluggish of the site these past few months. It won’t happen again. We’re very well-equipped for expansion and migrations to newer/bigger hardware, as needed, now that we’re running on all Cloudmin infrastructure.
