Don't worry about it. I'm just as frustrated as all of you when the site is having issues.

Re: Server too busy..... Or not loading at all....

Matty, hit me up with a budget and what you're currently hosted on. We've got another dedicated on a diff network than the one I showed you before now and have been happy with that as well. I won't mention any of it to anyone; pricing is great on each. I'd assume that you're on VPS right now? 200 concurrent isn't unfathomable for that depending how you've config'd and there are a lot of vbulletin and MySQL tweaks and caching options that can make it serve a lot better when under heavier load; I'm not sure what you've done so far in that regard but if you're not data and query caching efficiently look into that. Also, make a new skin that displays less graphics, less snazzy features, etc. We use one that we joking call "Poor Mode" and force it upon all users when we start to hit too high of a load from social media traffic. It cuts avs, sigs, a lot of the buttons, etc and put it into a mode that disables other intensive features like search, etc etc whatever is using up a lot of queries.

Serving ads to everyone you should be wanting to hear from anyonene, not just premium; but I know how things go and that's why I bought VIP several weeks back and it is your site after all

Just to be up front, our server costs right now run around $2k a year. I'm tossing in $200 this week for the RAM upgrade which should make a big difference in helping to avoid the dreaded "server busy" message. With the way the economy has been, advertising revenue is really down this year and the site barely pays for itself. It's frustrating because I would like to be doing more giveaways but the money just isn't there.

Rest assured the server issues bug the F outta me, and when need be I will toss in my own dough to cover things. Fact is the site continues to grow and every few years we simply outgrow our digs. Time to move it on up!

Again, thanks for the support everyone.
What are you paying almost 170 a month for that can't handle 200 concurrent? How many queries are being served a page? None of this really adds up; are you on completely managed hosting or something? I'm not trying to put you down or sound like a know it all but you should be getting A LOT more for the money.

I'm on this for 150/mo:

Intel Core2Quad Q9300

  • RAM: 4gb DDR2
  • Hard Drive: 500gb SATA2
  • Bandwidth: 3000gb/mo
  • Setup Fee: $0.00
and this for 125 (will move 2nd over to first soon if this first one continues to be reliable)

Processor: 2x Xeon Irwindale
L2 Cache: 4MB (2x2MB)
RAM: 2GB
Drive: 160GB SATA
Bandwidth: 2000GB (100Mbps port)

I have a coupon that's 15 or 20pct off for the first one as well

Re: Server too busy..... Or not loading at all....

Well, on a positive note I think I've got the server issues solved. Did some tweaking during the game yesterday and everything seemed to be great from the 2nd half on, and believe me we had some pretty big traffic yesterday.
