[01-OCT-2013] Welcome yet again to yet another server!

Hi everyone,

The nice thing about being the administrator of BLF is that I frequently have the opportunity to welcome you to a new server. The bad part about being the administrator of BLF is that I frequently have to welcome you to a new server… Silly Anyway, if you’re reading this message, you’re on the new server. It may not be any faster than the previous one, but the backend configuration should be much easier to maintain for the long run, and it should be a lot more reliable.

I did my best to make email notifications arrive reliably without being flagged as spam. But at any rate, there are far too many variables to take into account, and it’s very possible that some messages initially might end up in the spam folder. Please mark them as “not spam” if that happens. And please tell me how email notifications work for you.

You’ll probably see frequent brief periods of downtime as I continue to tweak settings and fix bugs.

As always, please let me know if you find any NEW bugs with this new configuration. Thanks for your patience! Have fun.

You guys have some crazy fast DNS. I’m currently accessing the site via the IP address because my DNS hasn’t updated yet.

I'm occasionally getting 502 Bad Gateway.

The low mode should be lower.

Yep, that’s me restarting a service. Sorry, still tweaking stuff.

It's a lot faster.

But I'm getting them 502's around once every four clicks. :\

 

Keep up the awesome work.

i cleared the dns cache, restarted the computer, cleared it again then navigated to BLF

if there is a future server change can the ip of the new BLF be posted on the changing over screen?

Was a bit flakey for me about 3 hours ago but all seems to have propagated through now.

Cheers for all your great work SB!

Thanks SB, for the record, mine showed updated this afternoon, even before the site was actually up. Smile

Really appreciate all the hard work, would be lost with you!

Looks good to me.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

Fast! Much faster than the last two servers.

 

"Mark All Read" used to take 20-30 seconds. Now it takes 1 second.
