Welcome to the new boards!

Post by |darc| » Sun Dec 31, 2006 12:38 am

The boards are now on the new server. The URL is temporarily pspemulation.com/dcemulation/phpBB. It will eventually be restored to dcemulation.org/phpBB.

The search function will not work right now, as the search tables are currently being rebuilt.

Post counts have also been resynced to their proper numbers.

There are some badge images that are not working. This is because the new server is hotlinking them from the old server, and the old server does not allow hotlinking. When the DNS is finally redirected to the new IP address, everything will work correctly.

Am I the only one that has noticed this new server is fairly slow?

I think it's something on your end, because as I clicked on your reply I was thinking "God damn this server is much faster"

Edit: Cheatah just upgraded the hosting plan, so host is moving our stuff to a better server, so you may see some more speed.

Edit: Oh, I'm running scripts and rebuilding the search tables still as well. I doubt this is having any effect, but it's worth noting that the server is having PHP commands hammered on it. It's been running for about 9 hours now and is 35% complete.

Yeah it was on my end. "Borrowed" my neighbor's connection and it loads in under 2 seconds.

This is fantastic. This is the kick in the ass that this site has needed for a while. It will be really nice to see the new site when it's finished up.

BTW - I guess someone moved the web site to the new server before I made the two newsposts I made on the front page yesterday? My newsposts show up at dcemulation.org, but they aren't at pspemulation.com/dcemulation.

On the front page? It never really crossed my mind. It seems to me like posting on the front page would be like screaming breaking news in the middle of the Sahara...

Just did at DCEmu UK. Guess I was a bit overwhelmed by the news...

Regarding the other sites: I don't have newspost access at DCEmulation and Dreamcast-Scene's down atm.

The forum's search table has been regenerated completely.

The amount of posts for a user on the server, the amount of posts specified in a person's profile, and the amount of posts returned for a search for that user are now all the same. This was not true before due to messed up tables.

In addition, the users table was backed up and then all zero posters have been removed from the database.

Now I'm going to sleep... it's 9:34am here and i haven't gotten any sleep yet.

Now that the boards are on a seemingly faster server, do you think you could re-enable the e-mail notification for topic replys? Or at least for every forum except null? There are always topics I'd like to stay on top of without having to check the site over and over. Is this possible?

For me it's still working it seems (as I came here by an email notification). Maybe you unchecked it in your profile ?
