    Default Solving the load problems of the forum

    Hi!

    Short introducing:
    The Skins.be forum and the whole community grows every day. On the 30th december we had more than 1100 users online. At the same time!
    That causes problems with our hardware setup of the forum.



    The last days we had some problems with the performance of the forum, but that is not new I think.

    During the next week - likely - we will move whole skins.be - that means main page, imagehoster and the forum - in a new computer center and to new and more powerful hardware.

    Because of that and because of the urgent problems with the load of the forum servers, we will update the forum software today and move to a bit stronger frontend server as interstation.

    That means, that the forum - and only the forum - could be unreachable or turned off for some time today.

    So please fasten your seatbelt! This landing could get a bit bumpy.

    Thank you for the informations, nimda...

    But btw. the Mainpage of skins.be (www.skins.be) is not affected by this works, so the mainpage will run without problems.
    We will inform you here about the next results.

    bye naj

    The first step - software updates of vbulletin and vbseo - has been finished.
    Next steps - move to the interstation and move to the new hardware/computer center - will follow tomorrow and next week.

    At the moment the system runs stable - but we need more power because of the growing community soon. So that will not be the last time the forum is down for maintenance.

    Looks good. (Actually, it looks almost the same, but usability is better, faster, stronger)

    Great work!

    I actually got used to slow loading. When I think of fast loading images, I become very happy.

    thanks nimda... looks good...

    But in this new version of the vBulletin Software it is not longer allowed to use your username as your password. Everyone who use it must change it during the login process. Thank you!

    Try using a proxy. If it works through the proxy then it's not your fault.

    edit: turns out it doesn't work for me when using a proxy...

    Hi jameske,

    which pics don't work? Do you mean our imagehoster?
    Do you see the image on this link?

    http://image.skins.be/1292547/68751-...ards45-122-11/

    In any case: Please try a different browser and try to deactivate any kind of protection-software you have installed.

    Forum seems to be a bit slower for me lately (pics loading rather slowly), I'm sure it has plenty to do with everything being moved, but I just thought I'd let you guys know.

    Be patient guys. As we said, we're still on old hardware. Until we change it you'll experience slow loading pages from time to time. We'll let you know when software change will happen - so please be patient.

    Hello everyone !

    For me, it's still slow after 5 min passed on the forum.
    And when I open more than one tab with Firefox, the pics loading are very very bad.
    I have to wait few minutes before I could reload the page for load differents pics...

    Is there a solution for that ?
    I have Firefox 3.0.6
