Site Traffic

Recommended Posts

Recently I've noticed the site has been responding quite slowly and I'm curious to know why. My internet and PC are good enough to load pages quick enough so I'm assuming it's something to do with the site itself. It takes about 15 seconds longer than usual. Any idea why?

 

Also this wasn't an angry post, just letting you know something isn't right :)

It's due to the server load (I think), it's averaging about 40. I'm trying to sort it out but it will take some time. The site itself is very optimised, but the server is making it run slowly due to the large amount of traffic server-wide.

Thought so just making sure you were aware in case there was an easy fix. Im happy to wait, it seems to be slightly quicker today either way :)

Since the maintenance brake yesterday, the site seems to be loading a lot quicker. Is this a coincidence or did you change some things? :)

No, the maintenance yesterday was for adding the new groups in - it's purely by coincidence at the moment, the server load is low.

Ahh I see. Is there anything that can be done as a long term solution to the server traffic? I'm just curious.

Not really. It depends on abuse accounts being disabled on the server, and the amount of other websites hosted there. I have already contacted the host; if it doesn't improve soon we're changing servers.

    • Site Downloads Renovation

      I'm pleased to announce that after a small (and complex) renovation, the site downloads section is now back online and running as usual. You can now submit your files to us again. Not much has visually changed, however there have been massive changes behind the scenes that have taken many hours to complete. I've essentially rewritten the entire downloads section from the ground up and restructured all of the database tables, which is not easy considering it's live data. One of the major cha

      I've recently re-coded the main site, and although there aren't any design changes, you should notice it's running faster. I've added a new menu item when you're logged in which is a link to submit to the gallery. I've also removed and combined several redundant pages.   I'm also excited to announce that there is a new feature on the site: from now on we have a page here which will show historical events and facts for whatever the current day is.

    • Site Idea

      The idea is simple and you may already have it but I haven't looked very well.   Make a new forum, called Campaigns, then a sub forum for each Stronghold game.   All members may contribute by sending ideas to moderators of the forum. Then the moderators can choose the best walkthrough and create a new topic. For example:   Campaigns - Stronghold 2 - Mission 6 (Olaf Grimtooth Your Time Has Come)   Then in that topic the moderator can paste the walkthrough or multiple walthroughs. For example:   W
