      Just to get the old post out of the way.

      Where have I been for almost a year? Working

      Pictures should be fixed but may be slightly slower for now. WIll be remedied in the near future.

    • Images Clarification

      11 years ago

      LittleJohn

      Just to let everyone know, we're working on revamping how the image system works and are ironing out a few bugs and transferring about 20GB of images over to a new server which takes a long time when that 20GB is made up of ~2 million files smiley7.gif

      So bear with us, we'll have your image upload and setting primary images funcationality back soon, we're anticipating this will happen tomorrow around noontime PST (GMT-8).

      Edit: ran into some troubles with the new images setup, reenabled uploading new images, setting primary is still broke. We'll be retrying the images stuff next week.

      We just switched over to the new DB server, hopefully this will speed things up a little more.

      Now cross your fingers because I have to leave for the next 5 hours or so, pRay nothing goes wrong smiley0.gif

      Edit: I forgot the R in pray initially, oops! smiley9.gif

      So most of the cross server stuff should be fixed now except for the images - except it seems that I broke users online in the process. I'll be getting on that first thing in the morning, it's 3am right now and I have to get up in 5 hours.

      EDIT: Aparantly I didn't break the cookies, I just broke everyone's ability to get to the site except for me smiley0.gif

      User Images are fixed.
      Sending email still needs to be fixed (DNS issue, zero not accepting mail from non fully qualified domain names - correct functionality)
      Images for site functions ie news only get stored on the server they're posted to (need NFS)
      Personal domains need to find a home.
      editing news posts goes to white page on submit.

    • Server Improvements Redux

      12 years ago

      LittleJohn

      Ok so except for the fact that the db server was just deadlocked for about 10 mins while it did its nightly backup things seem to be going fairly well. There are a few slight issues that I have to look into such as primary images and email notifications but things are looking quite a bit speedier. Getting rid of the deadlock during the nightly backup is now also on my ToDo list, will most likely switch to a replication based setup and do backups from that.

      There are two main improvements that are yet to be made that will both significantly speed up the site: images are not yet load balanced (need to setup NFS server to serve images to all webservers) and mysql has to be migrated to the new server (it was for about 10 mins tonight but we had to switch back due to a few oddities).

      Let me know if you experience any issues not mentioned above.

    • Upgrade Weekend Status

      LittleJohn

      So Gus and I spent about 14 hours today completely unracking all of the RT servers and then re-racking them along with some new ones smiley0.gif Well about 3 hours of that was probably spent running around Sacramento trying to find rails for some servers, but I digress.

      We've put the site back up for the night but it will be up and down a lot tomorrow as we migrate the site to some new servers and set up some new network devices.

      We switched PHP memcached libraries in attempt to get rid of some of the errors that randomly crop up on the site. If you still see any of them please post a comment here with the error and URL you got it on.

      hey,
      I'm not sure if your title implies that you work with sponsorships and what not, but one of the forum members, microphone recently sponsored me, like on wednesday or thursday, and if I recall, the process didn't usually take too long to go through. He said he got the bill that night, so that it must've gone through. If you don't deal with sponsorships, could you kindly foward this message to one who does? Greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance

      Thanks for adding me. It's actually quite an honor to have one of the three RT Web Guys on my friendlist.

      Maybe we can chit chat about complex PHP coding one. Day lol But seriously one day I will build something at least half as good as this site. Did you guys code the site yourselves or did you use an open source package? I honestly think the site was coded from scratch. Then the same coding used for Longhornnation.com (Honestly... they're copying our every action) lmao

      Talk to you later, bro.

      Hi, there seems to be a problem with the site, on and off all night I've been getting this message. some times it's for just a few minutes, sometimes it's for hours.

      It's been happening on both IE and Firefox. It doesn't seem to be following any pattern.
