    Default New Server Coming Tomorrow - (Installed!)

    I've got a new server rollout planned for tomorrow. We're going SOOOO slow when we have 300 people on the site at any one time it's getting pretty crowded and everything slows down.

    The new system should take care of a lot of that and if not, it's on to dedicated server time where we are the ONLY ones on the whole box. Let's hope that it doesn't come to that, but it is what it is, huh?

    UPDATE: It's installed and running!

    Yeah, now that we're getting 10k unique visitors per day, this is long overdue.

    How much down time should we expect?

    Ok, the new server is online and it looks like we're running about twice as fast. I'm seeing average pageloads now about 5 seconds on the bad connection that we're on.

    What does everyone else think?

    I'm plotting roughly 3x faster on some of these pageloads. Money well spent it looks like!

    Now i did notice that the switch went rather quick, since this morning when i was in at 7am (my time) it was still boggy and i didnt read your post till a while after that however when you did the switch it seemed to take less than 20 min for everything. Thought this wasnt a system upgrade?? i just remeber all the trouble there has been with the switches in the past.

    This is a hardware upgrade and not a system upgrade, so the system is the same. We're just on a faster and more robust server so we can handle it if we get 500 people here all at the same time.
