Current Server Difficulties

Post by theFinn » Thu Apr 04, 2002 6:49 pm

Greetings all. The launch has been quite successfull, however its a little too successfull. In the first 5 mins we had over 300 people on the forums alone (even more on the other sections of the site) and it rather overloaded MySQL.

We're currently working on helping MySQL deal with the load and it should improve as the day wears on, thanks for sticking with us :D

Ok, here's a quick update for all of the people who are interested:
It's just a misconfiguration problem in the server. It should be fixed for now, but in a few days, the site will become more optimized. I'll give Bart (BartVB) the credit for this, he did a lot of work trying to keep the site online for us.

You shouldn't have any more problems, but in case you do, let somebody know, usually someone is on IRC. :)
