Running on a Dedicated Server
For over a week now, I’ve been tweaking the testing this spanking new dedicated server and have moved over most of my blogs and blog projects. Will be moving the rest of the sites and the other blogs within the month. Downtimes and SQL errors are down to a minimal (actually, almost nil) ever since.
The new server is an AMD 64 3800+ with 2GB of RAM and two Seagate HDDs (the other one is for backup). It’s not on RAID though I don’t really have plans on going that path. The daily backups should do just fine.
This rig should be able to handle all the load with all the new blogs we’ll be putting up and the steady increase in traffic for the current ones. I’ve also done some WP 2.0 upgrades on the smaller blogs and though I hit on several snags and glitches, I managed to upgrade 3 of them within the day.
I really should be working during the day and sleeping at night, not the other way around.
