GTAForums Supercharged!

Every time I say 'the forums should be quicker' they seem to slow down again. However, this time I've waited a while and done a lot of testing before making this claim tounge.gif

 

A large amount of extra memory has been installed on the server and the database server has been heavily optimized to make use of this extra memory. You may notice that the search feature is now much faster - almost instant in most cases. The mail server has also been upgraded and optimized to provide faster outgoing mail from the forums. It's taken a bit longer for these hardware and software upgrades to take place than I would have hoped. Thanks to those who understood during the busy GTA San Andreas PC launch.

 

There is a bit of minor bad news, however. During the hardware upgrades the server was (accidently?) unplugged two times before being shutdown correctly by a server technician. As a result there were some reports of corrupt topics. As far as I'm aware, only a small amount of topics were lost. If you have any problems, let us know in the Forums Suggestions forum.

Well I'm glad to hear that, and I've noticed they seem to be going much better now. Spending your own money on such a thing is much appreciated, and no small cost to you either I imagine. So thank you, glad to have 'em back and fast.

Thanks a lot Tank, I don't even want to imagine how much work and of course money you spend in gtanet. I can't understand that many people complained so much in the days where the server run slow, I'm registered here since october last year, and the problems we all encountered were the first for me here, for about 10 months. And seeing how big gtanet is, you are doing a great job here that it still runs fine. So thanks again. smile.gif

If you just experienced a 'service unavailable' message or timeout, that was due to the web server restarting so some changes will take affect.

I've noticed the forums have been fast lately, after a slower period. The search engine, like you said, works fantastic. Great work, man.

That's good, but I understand why you would run PHP on IIS.

 

I'm not saying Apache is better than IIS, Linux is better than Windows, blah blah blah because I consider myself unbias... but PHP is designed to run better on Apache, and Apache is designed to run better on Linux. The server would perform better on a Linux/Apache server if all you are running are PHP scripts (The news + forum), and you probably wouldn't of had to upgrade in the first place if that were the case.

am i the only one who's gtaforums still goes slow?

 

 

Maybe your internet's slow? sly.gif

 

Sometimes my internet connection goes bad, so even if The forums are working well, I don't know if It's the forum or my computer that's making the forum slow. (right now, It's fast.)

Thanks. I love you.

Keep your shirt on.

lol

 

Seriously though good job guys. Not that timeouts and white pages could keep me away, but I like not having to worry about them.

 

Now all you need is the U.K. equivalent of a P.O. box, so I can send you some cash.

Great work, Tank! The forums are working faster than before for me. How much memory was installed, and how much did it cost you? Anyway, it's an awesome thing to make the forum better with your own cash and time. <3.
