theymos, was this because of new changes again? We need to be more pro-active about forum stability and software if we want to match forum growth, and the growth of Bitcoin as a whole.

No. Traffic is much higher, but I don't know exactly why it gets so slow. Memory usage seems fine now. Things improve after I restart mysql, php-fpm, etc., but then the site gradually slows down over time.

As I said, I'm making arrangements to move to a better server. This isn't as easy as it sounds because I don't (and won't) control any of the forum's critical assets other than the BTC. So I need to get someone trustworthy to buy the server (this part seems OK, but not done yet), and I need to get Sirius to update the DNS (I haven't heard from him yet).

Damn, didn't know that, so cloudflare is out of the question.

I would be more than happy to help out if needed, just ask.

Any estimated time frame on the server buy? I knew traffic was getting higher, but I'm surprised it's had this much of an affect on the site. I guess there's a silver lining in all the lag, at least. Smiley

I don't think that it's a bandwidth/DDoS problem. I think that the server's hardware is just too weak to handle this much traffic.

Any estimated time frame on the server buy?

Less than a week, hopefully.
