Pack your Bags!

Unread postby Legion » Wed, 10th Sep 2008 11:11

Ok, it was brought to my attention yesterday that it's our website that's causing the server where Kovu's site is hosted to have these downtimes, due to having over 1000 hits a month, and so, we got to move.

Kovu's provider seems to currently not be able to cope with this kind of stress to the servers, and our sessions table having over 1 million IPs logged isn't helping either, therefore I subscribed a sub-domain for MG at informe.com, where we'll also have a wiki which I so many members asked for, so we can build an online resource for this game, I was also informed by Inform administrators I can send them this database and they'll proceed to upload our portal at informe, so no data is lost in the moving, however, this'll mean that, for a certain period of time, the Modding Genesis Forum will see most of its forums locked so to prevent important data from being uploaded here and not at our new domain. I'll also request Kovu to, when the database is uploaded at informe, to repoint JI's address to our new home so that our users don't have to re-bookmark the website.

Hopefully you guys will understand the importance of this move since Kovu's server can't handle our database and bandwidth demands, which means that it was only a matter of time before Kovu was forced to shut MG down.

The database dump will be made and sent today to informe, so, for your own good, don't post anything important until we successfully move.

Thank you for believing in MG.

Actually "+1000" requests per month.

No problem. I have a solution in mind (always depending on if informe is handling the URL arguments the same way as phpBB3 does itself).

Does this have anything to do with it breaking the other day?

Will it be basically a copy & paste of this, or will there be some sort of facelift/new features (aside from the wiki & portal already mentioned, or is that too much for DL alone)

You'll see once it's done. And DL is lazy.

Your preaching to the converted.
I reckon everyone must know, and for those that don't maybe it should be your user title.

Alright, I've tested it, it seems we can go around the HTML string translation. This means - I can simply forward the URL arguments that are requested here, on my server, to "viewforum.php" and "viewtopic.php" over at informe.

This way crosslinks and search engine entries are still correct, and the regular users won't even notice that MG is at a new place.

I already wrote the forwarder scripts - now it's up to informe, to upload your DB.

requires a lot of effort, but neccesary...

Why so worried? It won't be much of a problem.
