Important Site Information

Recommended Posts

Sorry about the outage earlier. I was hoping to get lucky and not have to take site down, but updated to php needed an apache up-date and restart. Over the next few days I will be applying all of the updates I have been working on so expect a little site weirdness. If you have any bugs that persist after clearing cache of Volvospeed temp files, feel free to submit a bug report under the support tab at the top. 

Some of these updates are moving towards upgrades I have planned for this server. I hope to have the site running mirrored on new box within a week or so. New box will be dual e5-1650s for those who care. That should help with server side a good bit, but main bottle neck is still i/o. I saw some black Friday sales pop up on drives and ram. If we can raise a little bit of money we can upgrade the SAS to RAID 10 which should help A LOT, donation link in sidebar. So if we hit our goal that is the plan. If we do not get close I will just throw another 16gb in the machine and increase cache threads. Either way, expect the site to be a lot faster in the next few weeks, and hopefully I have gotten to most of the bugs.

That explains the memory sidebar donations.  I'll do my part.

I have over a hundred files to upload that should help quite a bit with search speed and everything else. More ram and allowing more of it for xcache will also help a great deal for most pages. Things that cannot be cached though will really only speed up with the i/o crunch fixed. IE moving from Raid 1 to something striped like raid 10.

What kind of Ram are you looking for? I may have some spares in my Lan-Room

DDR3 1866 ECC. Would be a huge help if you had a few sticks laying around.

As an FYI. Cpan on this box was a few versions out of date. When it updates it goes one version at a time so it has basically 2 more full updates to do. While server is updating site will be slow but stable. It will restart apache when it updates PHP, but apache restart should be under a minute. So bad news. Slow site today. Good news. Any downtime should be very brief.

I rummaged through my bin and only found older DDR2,  I've got another bin at work I'll have to check and see what's there.

Nah its ecc, it was in our server spares drawer in the LAN room I found 3 more packs of 32GB today. They were for the R710's we no longer have. Have a couple 8 TB drives also but I have to make sure they have no data on them.

If what you have came out of a desktop unit, there's a good chance it isn't ECC.

Trust me, it's ECC.

Everything is pretty much ordered. Only thing I need to figure out is Raid 10 or swap raid 1 to 0 and just backup nightly offsite.

      I have owned this amazing vehicle and as I started researching, I found that these cars make great sleeper cars.   No one wants to be taken by a grocery getter. 
      I am starting the build and want to get educated on my car. Vehicle: Grey 92 Volvo 240 Wagon. Engine 2.3L (That's all I know currently)  I have began tearing into the engine as it died on me and has been sitting for about a year now.  Shop said timing belt was busted and wanted 1,800.  I decided to do it myself.  I am mechanically inclined but far from a master mechanic.  Anyways, I welcome any and all advice.  I am going for sleeper, and will update any mods done.  I want it running first.  As you can see the belt is not busted and since the shop wouldn't return my car for almost 8 months, (Whole other story). I hope more issues have not raised.  At almost 200,000 but prior to dying it was running very well.  While I am tearing into it I want to fit it with a turbo. 
      Again I can work on stuff, but tricking out, yeah not my thing so first question would be.....Is this motor able to handle a turbo and will I have to get forged guts?  Can I keep the same fuel rail?  Cam suggestions.......So on.  Thanks and I am new to the group.............
