Site Outages Yesterday Evening

Well, you might have noticed some site outages yesterday evening between 20 and 22 o'clock (CET); right? I'm really sorry but thanks to the Palm Folio news, which Google News grabbed immediately from the::unwired which Google News listed until this morning as one of the top 5 links about this topic - I had up to 300 - 400 unique visitors per minute on the web server yesterday evening. This was definitely way too much for my 3 years old web server. Maybe it's time to upgrade to a new machine?

First I thought to wait until Windows Server 2008 is out but for which reason? On the server, only my web server, PHP and MySQL are running so I don't think there is a real reason to wait for Windows Server 2008 but Windows Server 2003 should be good enough anyway. So I might upgrade to a new Opteron 175/ 1216 server with 2x2 GHz CPU and 4 GB RAM soon.

Cheers ~ Arne

Congrats on the Google link - and sorry to hear about the outage.  But at least you have a good reason to upgrade now!
