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
