new server for inaneworld!


Yay! After several days of tedious work, inaneworld is now running on it's new server.  It was running on windows 2003 with IIS.  Now, it's running on Ubuntu with Apache.  I used the turnkeylinux.com "wordpress" appliance.  A word of caution: watch the memory usage.  Docs say that you can run this with 256M of RAM (I'm running it under HyperV, but this probably applies whichever hypervisor you are using).  I found that after I loaded all my dozens of plugins, the bloat caused the machine to become unusably slow (sometimes hang).  I bumped the RAM to 400M and it lasted longer, but still hung.  I bumped it again to 600M and now it seems happy.  Please let me know what you think of the performance, especially if you notice a difference vs the old server.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
