    Default GMTC - Server maxed out again! Have to upgrade

    Well, we did it again, all of the site traffic means that we have to upgrade the server once again. We're just about at the highest level of VPS that we can get, so the next stage is a full co-located server that is fully backed-up, monitored 24/7, redundant, etc.

    So, SORRY to everyone who's noticed a big slow-down in the last few weeks. It's not just the upgrade to the new system, it's also a big increase in traffic that we've seen too recently.

    Keep your eyes open in the next few weeks for some limited downtime when we transition to a new server farm.

    99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)
    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
    62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)

    Not that simple, it's a lot of work to roll-back and if I did that, I know that the site would be faster, but I would still be looking to upgrade to something else (double-work) to keep up with industry standards for SEO, photo galleries, CMS requirements, articles, etc.

    I'm going to close this thread and open up a new one discussing why GMTC has gotten slower since the upgrade.

    Looks like the updates worked really well, the site is quite a bit faster tonight.
