Server outage today
« on: February 28, 2024, 04:00:33 PM »

due to hardware problems at the hoster, we had several server outages today. It works again, but I plan to move the forum to a new server within the next weeks.

Happy coding

Leverage caching while your at it. And it would be highly beneficial to move to FastCGI (php-fpm).

VB should support the 3 main caching methods for PHP. Opcache, memcached, etc.

Lastly, the latency seems fine but other than the forum script itself, it would do just fine on a VPS if on a budget. I don't know how it is performing as of current, but keeping a note on the CPU usage and database load will direct those in charge in a solid direction.

I would personally TAR/GZ the entire www root, so you retain file system permissions and extract that on the new hosts disk (so you rid yourself of CHMOD duties later). It saves a great deal of time.

God luck!
