I understand there has been some issues lately with stability for this website and the attached radio shoutcast channel, but that there are plans to move to another server and other actions that may help things out. Could someone in the know post a little about what's happening and what future plans are?

Just asking as a curious and conerned member. Smile

If some of the details were made public, maybe someone here who isn't into being an admin or moderator here, but nevertheless knows a thing or two about php or network tech or whatever, can offer input that might help in some way.

I applaud all the hard work that's being put into keeping this up and running, I am aware of Howard, Jan and Paul working hard with the servers and I am duly impressed, not to mention all the other spam snipers and janitors putting an effort in.

/Stefan

My main interest personally is just knowing what's going on. I get anxious evertime the site goes away.

We have a hardware problem at the datacenter. They are working on it. It can take many hours we are told. This problem has sidetracked our plans to migrate to a new bigger server.

We are working with go daddy.com to fix fit. It's in their hands at this time.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I think we reached the conclusion that there were hardware problems after we had exhausted all of the non-hardware options. We have been methodically going through all of the site issues - security, slow queries, code issues, and traffic control primarily - and it got to the point that the site runs well, except for when it just stops running completely. That part was not obvious to locate.

I think once the hardware issues and the server migration are completed that the site will be in much better shape. Godaddy hasn't been bad and the site was doing about 40GB of traffic a day for a while - part of our traffic was bad acting site scraping sort of activity and they don't seem to care about the rest of the site's users, they're very happy to take as much resource as they can. Believe me, we've been watching a lot.

As Howard says, please bear with us. It should get much better soon.

I'd like to make it clear that our members are welcome to download anything they want to listen to or read from this site, and that extends to non-members of the human kind. We're not so generous towards web crawlers that seem to just want to take the content of the site at the expense of everyone else. We notice this stuff and we will take steps to block such traffic including IP block bans.

A very large part of the site is our being able to listen to original music posted by our members, both from the archives and on the radio. We want to keep that part working and as mentioned earlier, we do regularly monitor the logfiles looking for bad guys.

I would add that the bad guys tend to show up in monitoring sites that keep track of such behaviour. That's one of the criteria we use to determine who's a bad guy. If you're a member just downloading from the archives, carry on.

Thanks for all the heart and soul put into electro-music.com! <3

Browsing here from just south of the Italian/Austrian border I can see that the new server is looking great! Very Happy

Please don't interpret this thread as anything but a melancholy guy fearing that his hold on the world was slipping.

/Stefan
