There has been numerous mentions/complaints/moans about how slow the site has been running in the last few days or so. It has been painfully slow, especially in the last 24 hours. 1FF needs a new, upgraded, self sufficient server that TractorBoys is planning on implementing before the season starts next week. That should solve the speed issues and ensure that we are running to full speed/capacity in time for the big season opener next weekend!

UPDATE 3RD AUGUST 2015:
New server is now paid and pending setup... the entire move should take no more than 2 hours however as we are switching to a brand new server we are at the mercy of how quickly the nameservers update. Official timeframe is anywhere upto 48 hours for these to resolve but typically it only takes 4-6 hours these days. Propogation may happen quicker for some people, slower for others, its beyond our control.

Cheers,
TB


Cheers.

Saddle, I seem to be experiencing some problems with the server. It's extremely slow and I can't do anything, could you look into this please?

Wait...

Hadn't had any issues with the site over the last week, but today has been noticably laggy moving around the pages, even the shoutbox seems to be suffering slightly

It's almost unusable now.

EDIT.

The system may have been tweaked but it seems fine at the moment.

Sorry folks, I've been MIA for the last few weeks. Server move happens tonight, I'm sourcing a provider later today through somebody I used to work with. Downtime will be no more than a few hours- I'm going to do it straight away when I get home so downtime will be 6-8pm approximately. Can't do it any later just incase we hit any snags.

As has been mentioned in another thread, we are planning on moving over to a new, better, larger and more self-sufficient server with the new season just around the corner. Unfortunately as we swap over from server to server there will be a period of undefined downtime. The downtime is a propogation of data from one server to another.

Downtime varies from person to person.

Standard - 4-6 hours
Best - 2-3 hours
The longest possible - 24-48 hours

Sorry about the downtime but after a week or so of the site running awfully, it's about time that this is sorted. Everything should be at 100% for the weekend.

Cheers
Admin.
