Resolved issues
« on: March 17, 2011, 01:45:22 PM »
Heya guys, sorry about a few of hours of down time earlier; there were 2 unrelated overlapping technical issues - 1. the server was being moved due to an expansion 2. the database was using up so much CPU that the host company had to disable it.

Turned out it was due to the abandoned oldest forum we had (a php one at quintessence-tbv.com/forums ) causing the issue; we left that one due to the number of spambots anyway (there were like hundreds of thousands of spambot members when I checked again a few months ago, heh).

Anyway, so that spamalot forum has been wiped off the map now, and it should cause this forum to be faster (and more stable) too. :) Cheers~

I was scared it would be Something severe and all the data would be lost like what happened on Amaranthia once,
But the forum is now even better than before :)

Got the entire forum database backed up now, so we're secure and cozy. :)

If that were the case, "due to the fact that--" would be incorrect. :p

I realized this yesterday, it was out for most of the day for me, but I didn't check during the evening, though. Glad to see it's fixed and that it is likely to run faster due to the cleanup.

Need scripting help? Toss me a PM and I'll see what I can do.
Also able to help with anything RMXP related. Please do not hesitate to ask.

How much space do we cost? (MBs? GBs? o.O)
