Is the site faster, slower, no different?

    Tonight we moved the RPF to a new server. Our hope is that 1) we will stop seeing 500 errors and 2) the site will run a bit more quickly. Please let us know if you feel the site is loading faster, slower, or no differently than before.

    I noticed a distinct slow down after the switch yesterday.

    But after tonight's down time, it's fast as can be.

    Turn it up to Eleven.

    Seems pretty good on my end, not lightning but way better than the last few weeks. :)

    Right now, it's about the same. Site loads superfast already. I think in the past year, I've gotten the 500 error message no less than five times, but I usually just click the RPF tab in my favorite again for it to load.

    Site feels hella faster, and no errors yet so far! Is this the work of that mysterious PhilP fella? He's as mischievous as that "RPF Staff" member... :lol either way bravo and cheers to our glorious overlords! :cheers

    I didn't get errors too often but it was very slow, sometimes I'd click a link and it would just hang. Seems much faster now, well done and thanks :thumbsup

    Oh, I noticed one thing.

    When I open a thread, it loads OK, but for some reason, the thingy that goes round in the tab bar (globe for IE, a quarter sliver of a circle for Chrome, etc), keeps on spinning like the page is still loading.

    This happens with threads, not 'front pages'.

    The site has been down for me all morning. It just came back up a little bit ago. Seems O.K. speed wise for me.

    The site was down for me until about 10:20 Central this morning. Might be coincidence, but I was entering therpf.com in the address bar and it wouldn't load. So I tried www.therpf.com and it popped right up.

    Much faster on my end. No question.
    It was never slow, but I was getting that darn error message often enough...no error yet, and I will say no doubt that it's faster.
    Nice work guys.

    Seems to be loading up a heck of a lot faster. The downtime this morning was a little concerning though.:) After the downtime last night it was really fast then we hit the downtime this morning and now it is as fast or faster than after the first downtime.

    Hopefully not confusing.:) The site seems to running a lot smoother no errors have presented themselves yet! And the pages all load in blink of an eye.

    The issue this morning was that we didn't have the connections setup correctly and we got overwhelmed. The site wasn't technically down... just too many people trying to connect at once. We have upped that number.

    Like they said, the site was down earlier for me too. But the speed now seems about the same or maybe a tad quicker to me. :thumbsup

    For the past year and a half we have been on a Windows box, first at Godaddy and then with Switch. While I prefer Windows because I can actually work in it, it has been nothing but a headache. We are still on with Switch, but we just moved therpf.com over to a Linux box. We are also working on spooling up a second Linux server for some load balancing.

    Ok... is the site going crazy for other people as well? I keep getting weird random pages when I click a link. I tried to go to my sale thread for superman crystals and ended up at the hunters lair?

    I tried to go to the junkyard, and got a page describing linkbacks and pingbacks?

    Is it just me?

    The site seems to have up and down a couple of times in the last few minutes. But when it's up, it appears to be running faster.

    Its faster, but keeps going in and out for me. Pulled up a thread with 5 replies read thru them real quick and the posted a reply. After I was done typing and hit submit it couldn't connect. Seems there are still a few bugs to exterminate, but look like it will be pretty good once ironed out.


    EDIT- Just did it again trying to post this reply

    Was down for me half the day, but it's fine now and speed is excellent. My history has been that it always had acceptable speed, but I couldn't always get the site to serve the pages. Wait a bit and it would be back fine.
