Murena and Multipla - I like it 3 abreast!

I'm finding it very hit and miss to access the website at the moment. Are there issues with the server?

I know from Lennart that it has been suffering from lack of RAM for a long time. The other forum on the server has a good deal more activity than this one and the traffic there hits the server hard. A reconfiguration in June made it better, but hasn't fixed the problem at all. The server uses an odd type of RAM, so an upgrade involves the whole machine essentially - that's why they haven't done it yet.

Correct, but most of August we saw no aborted HTTPD servers - however the last 4 deays it happened 4 times. Problem is that as the websites grow larger, and in particular the databases grow, so does the related processes, so I have been forced to decrease the potential availability to some rather extreme values Sad

The plan is to replace the server with new hardware, which will increase memory at least 10 fold - I can hardly wait. However, funding is still being sorted out, so it is unclear when this is going to happen.

On the Club-Arnage forum they try to get funding contributions from the members, - not sure how far they have gotten, but considering the size of this forum, I don't expect we can do a lot - unless somebody have an idea ??

It costs about 1300 EUR/year to run the server (UPS power & unlimited bandwidth), and a new server will be say 2000 EUR.

All ideas (and contributions) are welcome.
