      Server Issues - 1/10/2011

      We have just performed some updates and the server needs to be rebooted to take affect.

      Hopefully this will be the end of the problems we have had the last week or so, if not, I have no idea.

      It's a pain in the backside, as there are no indications of what the issue actually is. Saying that we have had this server for nearly 4 years, so I guess an upgrade is due, as the guests / visitors has far exceeded our expectations etc

      You mean that you didn't foresee nearly 55,000 members after just over 5 years?

      Thanks for getting it back up though.

      lol

      We were happy with 100 members when we started back then.....

      If you could see the messages we sent, saying 51 members, 100 members etc etc then you will realise that this has become more than anything we ever envisaged.

      The server is quite powerful tbh - And should cope with more than what we can throw at it, unfortunately, the database of this site is now huge, and less than 2gb of storage space left. We need to change over, but the thought of all the work etc just puts us off.

      Good news is we are going to, just waiting for quotes to come back at us and then we will decide from there, but the amount of work is tremendous, and something that we cannot rush into.

      No matter how you look at it, the site has been a success.

      The remaining 2gb of storage space will vanish quickly over the next week if we're not careful though. Is it worth considering a temporary ban on uploading pics, etc. until the upgrade has occurred?

      Links to the pics would be fine if the pics are stored off-site.
