Willkommen in Deutschland

Skrevet af Rudi // søndag dec 1, 2013 under Hosting

After a minor storm in Denmark the old server stopped responding on web requests for some reason. As it has been planned for a long time to move to a new server, nothing was done to revive the old server configuration.

Instead my sites has been moved to a new server placed in southern Germany on industrial gigabit lines.  Hopefully this will speed up the image galleries, enjoy :)

Slow wordpress

Skrevet af Rudi // lørdag feb 5, 2011 under Hosting

After moving my wordpress installation (2.6.2) to my new server i noticed a big problem with loadtimes. Even simple wordpress sites took about 5 seconds or more to load.

My first attempt to solve the problem was to see if there was a problem with hardware performance on the server. This seemed unlikely because the server is (almost) dedicated to host this site. And of course this wasn’t the problem. Almost no workload was experienced when requesting a wordpress page.

Secondly i tried to turn off all wordpress plugins, to see if some of them was causing the troubles. This didn’t help.

Finally i found the problem. I turns out that wordpress needs to be able to make DNS requests, and my new server is connected to my DMZ zone, where only a few necessary ports are opened. By allowing DNS to pass trough, the problem was solved. Even though outgoing HTTP traffic still is blocked.

Conclusion: Your wordpress hosting server needs to be able to make DNS request.

Tilbage online

Skrevet af Rudi // lørdag feb 5, 2011 under Hosting

Så er siden endeligt kommet online igen!

Denne gang er vi i luften på en Microsoft Windows 2003 Server som udelukkende er sat op med det formål at hoste et par småsider for mig, med henblik på at den skal kunne bruges til lidt ASP.NET udvikling.

Der er sket mange ting siden sidste opdatering af siden. Jeg mangler blandt andet at få sendt en masse billeder online. I den forbindelse skal jeg have lavet et bedre system til håndtering af billeder, da det ind til nu har været en lang process mellem at billedet er taget til det er online. Forhåbentligt findes der en masse lækkert opensource software der ude der kan klare det trick. Måske en opdatering til den nyeste wordpress kan gøre underværker?
