The Lounge>(Welcome to the) NEW Chiefsplanet SERVER!!!!
AustinChief 06:36 PM 11-23-2010
OK, the time has finally come... we have a new server!

I will be spending tonight and all day tomorrow transitioning to the new digs... I don't expect it to affect us until late tomorrow afternoon.

I will make give everybody a warning then take us offline for (hopefully!) 3-4 hours...

When we are done, we will have a new home with 6 TIMES the power and RAM as before... I expect to see some MAJOR upgrades in performance... once we have settled into the new server, I will start to prep us for a major upgrade to our Vbulletin software... but that may wait until the post season...

I know it's been a long time coming, but bear with me for a little longer and it will all be worth it!

Shit man maybe I should volunteer to run CP on my new server I'm building...but somehow I doubt I'd have the bandwidth to serve this place!:-)

Depending upon how it's configed I'd bet the ram will show the biggest gains. That's going to be a ncie step up!

OK, to speed up the process.. I am going to have to shut off attachments at some point... temporarily... It will likely happen around 3am or so... then be turned back on when the xfer is finished...

Do you have plans to convert it to InnoDB after the move?

And are the 250GB going to be in a RAID?

What OS is running

Sorry I deal with this stuff All day long so I'm just curious

vBulletin uses fulltext search, which requires myISAM. If we can ever get away from that (there are options, but they're complex), then innoDB is a possibility.

Don't think RAID is in the plans, though AC can address that.

Seriously though, great news & thanks for all the work.
