I've moved the forum to a much newer and faster server, so we should see significant speed improvements.

As usual, if you have any issues, post them here or let me know via PM, and I'll try and address them. I expect you should see no difference apart from faster response times.

Thanks guys!

It does seem a bit more swift, although for me it's usually fast enough, even though the server is located in USA. The USA guys should notice the biggest difference.

For those interested, the site uses Cloudflare, which has servers in most countries, which helps speed things up. Cloudflare was implemented about a year ago, when we suffered some DDOS attacks, and Cloudflare did a great job protecting against that, and we've not had any such issues for a long time now.

The new server also offers better security, and unlimited disk space, so I can now increase the quota of PMs and attachment uploads. :rock:

Has anyone noticed speed improvements?

Hi Haggis,

I notice moving within threads to be noticeably faster. However, Firefox shows the page as trying to connect with Facebook which causes moving between pages a lot slower (This is coming from China where Facebook is blocked).

I have the same initial load slowdown with TTD. I assume something to do with APIs? Don't quote me, not an IT expert.

Hah hah :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

BTW I've switched on a few other Cloudflare options to speed up loading, namely Railgun and Rocket Loader. The site is absolutely flying at the moment, I've never seen it this fast. :rock: As usual, if there are any issues, let me know.

Although the forum is now running on a much faster server, some of you would have noticed it running quite sluggish at certain in the last few days.
This is because there have been swarms of spammers / spambots continuously hitting the forum at times, I'm not sure what they're trying to do.

Anyway, I think I've now implemented some measures to block them using a few different methods, so hopefully it will be back to normal. It's been running very fast for me since I've made the changes, so hopefully it will stay this way, at least for a while ;) It's a never ending battle between spam bots, and websites trying to block them.

I have not seen that happen myself, but it may have been during times when the wave of spam-bots hit the forum, causing it to be so slow it timed out.

Just a few mins ago the site wasn't opening with the "max MySQL connections" error.

BTW, the error message seems to display the MySQL admin username which doesn't seem to be a good security practice.

I wish I could see it when it happens, so that I can work out the cause. It's probably another swarm of spammers though. It's been consistantly FAST for me over the last 2 days, and I check regularly. :lol:
Interesting about the username being displayed... not sure of the hosting company can fix that.
