New hosting

Ok so again, more down time... Basically, the server adarq.org was previously hosted on was wrecked. Not only that server, but the hosting itself. They had some serious OpenVZ issues which were wreaking havoc.. That's also why we had a ~day of data loss; last night's backups were corrupted.

So that's the bad news.. The good news is I purchased some legit hosting. This box is 10x faster than the previous one. It's also on SSD.

The SMF forum software we were using was incredibly old. I couldn't get it to install on these new 14.04 LTS ubuntu containers etc. So I did a pseudo upgrade - that's what you're seeing. This is the basic SMF theme.

As for programming, if any of you want to do some coding on here, i'm going to be setting up a little lab environment. We're going to have a dedicated lab environment. I'll be working on the new forum prototypes on here too etc. I'll create sub domain urls so we can test them out live with our current data, ie: yesod.adarq.org will be the first one.

If the forum is wrekt please let me know.. need to bring a few things back, such as pretty urls.

peace folks.

Sounds cool.
It'll be good to have a fast and reliable server.

Thanks for keeping this site up and running and maintaining it!

Did our first full 'nightly' sql backup tonight.. Backing up the SQL db (105M) used to take like 15+ minutes (i think it was more like 30) on the other server. It takes 2 seconds on this one.

 :ibsquatting:

Need to add slave replication too, through an ssh tunnel from my personal laptop... lul.

;f

So ya, the backup thing is great.. I think raptor was the one who said the site would get extremely slow at certain times. That was the mysql backup running. It would render the site useless for ~15minutes or more.

peace!

Just copied over the current forum to a test directory, in hopes of working on goodpost/badpost tonight.. So ya, just letting you all know I definitely plan to get it back on the forum. I miss it.

I added a new vhost etc, .. If you guy's notice any weird problems let me know. Working in that other directory shouldn't interfere with the forum.

R.I.P good post bad post.

We've actually done this before........... I never learn when it comes to bear/bare. I guess i'm afraid of typing 'bear' due to the terrible history of 'bear' on irc. Btw..... I'm going to downvote you :D

edit: Shit it didn't work.
