Default Re: Server change....

I still get frequent timeouts.. there have been times I just quit making threads altogether.. last time I asked a question, I tried to make a thread.. got a time out every single time.. so I gave up and went to another forum.

This server is terrible, and i always thought bandwidth wouldnt be an issue.

Generally large message boards seem to eat under 100 gig of bandwidth a night, but require lots of processor power and ram.

Better sever = more adds correct?

Just stick some more at the bottom and call it good. I know easiler said then done but you catch my drift..

I can't imagine a forum using a lot of CPU crunching power...

10% max is suprising, other forums (with newer software and more features however) use a dual processor 2.5ghz box to it's max.

1.Turn off
2.Un plug all sires
3.Dust off
4. Wait half an hour or so!
5.plug server back in and turn it on
6.Archive old posts!
7.Defragment
8.Restart one last time


I know that would take a while but hey it might help some how right?
Erm...

Deleting old posts; I 100% disagree. You could use valuable data like guides and whatnot written back when the forum was new or something like that, plus the amount of data would have nothing to do with how many requests the server can handle without having those annoying timeouts.
