Hey all,

Due to the wiki-publication team (http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13103) really pushing our current server resources, I'm in the process of upgrading/migrating the server. So please bear with any hiccups over the next day or two.

On the plus side, you shouldn't see any 500 errors anymore from the wiki. :cool:

I don't see the 500 error anymore. But the response of the server is slow recently, particularly in the wiki page

I have seen some 503 errors of recent. Is this because of limits on traffic/usage?

Thanks for providing a great forum!

Thanks for the feedback guys, I'll look into both of the issues.

So you may have noticed the site has been slow as of late...so I'm moving it to a dedicated server as we speak (no more shared host!). This should not only double our RAM but remove any virtualization and database overhead from the shared system.

If the site goes down or has DNS issues over the next day or two, please bear with us. =]

We're on the new host now...please report problems if/when you see them! Thanks!

Seems significantly faster from where I am, and from all the tests I can run on it. True test will be tomorrow as today is a holiday in the US.

Looking good so far. Sometime you become a victim of your own success, right?

Let us see how long before you need a second server for better load balancing :-)

I'm just about maxed out at the current host. As far as vbulletin boards go, we're still tiny and should be served by a single server pretty well....but yes, the next steps are a load balancer and multiple web/db servers. :D

It's those darn enthusiastic semantic-wiki guys that need all the memory!
