WELCOME BACK! We're now on our new server

Thanks for your patience during the transition. We're on the new server. I still have a few things to button up, like the gallery, but otherwise please resume posting!

Edit: Can at least one person post to let me know members are able to post OK? Thanks.

Shane

Thanks!  [thumbs up]

Looks like we're getting people back on here slowly as the DNS changes propagate out through the internet. I'm off to bed. Please notify me of any issues via email or PM.

Tapatalk was down for awhile but maybe it was the whole server.

I agree, so far everything is much faster.

Shane, I'm still having problems viewing images. Not all but some embedded and some avatars don't display.

I've tried refreshing and clearing browser cache.

EDIT: Guess this might be related to your other post:
"I can already tell you that the gallery may be offline longer and may not get complete transitioned for another day or two."

Hi Shane,

Thanks for the spell checker.

The site is very very slow 30 to 40 seconds per page and over a minute to log in.

The rest of the internet OK and fast.

John,

Being a new server, I wasn't sure where to start out the amount of processing power, etc. I have been watching the performance today and it's slowed down as the day progressed and we headed toward the peak usage of the day when we have 500+ visitors on the site at once.

I just added more "power" to the site about 10 minutes ago and it's running better now from my end. See post:

http://festoolownersgroup.com/forum-features-functions/important-notice-forum-maintenance-tonight/msg143009/?topicseen#msg143009

I also turned on a feature of the forum that shows page load times at the bottom of the page. I'm getting about 2 seconds now on the front page, which is the slowest.

Hi Shane,

Must be Turbo Lag.  [big grin]. load up times are very good now.

Thanks again for the spell checker

Regards John

Welp, no more reports of slow downs. I think we're cooking now on this new server. Thanks for everyone's patience while I worked out the initial glitches.
