    Some update for everyone.

    MNS in its current form will no longer exist by the end of the month/year. Not sure where Readymix ever got with a move, so Steve-O and myself have decided to move it to one of my raspberry pi's in my rack.

    So far, we have got a mirror of this site up and running. I have to now go through the process of making sure everything works on the test site and start the transition. So I will be making changes to the live site to parse out the stuff that isn't needed after the final backup/transfer.

    So you will start to see some changes on the site and how things are working along with some features that are not used. Hopefully everything will be a fairly smooth transition.

    Thanks
    Russ

    I am just speaking for myself, but the sumo car wash imo is timeless.

    It goes well with that other thread where you all want to be each other's neighbors.

    Ok, so now that the site has been running for almost a week, has anyone noticed any slowdowns or issues? What I can see is that everything looks pretty good every time I get on the site. I am also not online in the afternoon when we usually have a couple people in the chatbox (if that still happens).

    Let me know what everyone thinks and as long as we think we are good to go, I am going to deactivate the old servers and run only on the raspberry pi.

    I haven’t seen any hiccups since I saw the sumo wrestlers washing a forester. I think that you are good to go Russ

    Only thing I've noticed is there's no http to https redirect?

    No changes, if it wasn't for the sumo car wash i probably wouldn't have known.

    Hm. Interesting... On a specific URL? It seems to be redirecting for me, but it's possible that config got broken.

    Lol, did something change since I posted it? Before my mobile browser was autocompleting to the http://mnsubaru.com which wasn't redirecting to https. But checking again now I'm not able to reproduce it. LGTM.

    I wasn't able to reproduce it, but I did toggle the force redirection on at Cloludflare. I'm guessing that fixed whatever it was.

    I had an error this morning something about cloudflare but refreshing the page fixed it.

    Seems to work for me. Im surprised it works this well on a raspberry pi. Just one?
    I wonder how many users it would be able to serve up and not crash.

    Yep just one. It is a raspberry pi 4b (quad core 2.0Ghz) with 8GB of memory and a 128GB ssd running through the usb3.0 port.

    I have seen 6 people and a couple of guests/bots and it was only running 15% cpu, so it should be ok for what this place has become.

    Awesome! Thanks for the hard work over the years and keeping this place running.

    During the old times when it was much busier here what kind of server did you need/use?

    We were running 2, 2 core 4gb linode servers. One was for the apache/web side of things and the other was running the database.So far, I think the biggest "drains" on the system were the bots/guests and the ads. before the move we were averaging 60-100 constant (24/7) bots/guests scraping the site. Now we usually only have 1-2. I have been actively blocking as much as I can just to keep the load down. We no longer actively submit website info to google/internet. At this point this is to keep the site online, and not to grow anything. If it organically starts to take off again, we will look at what would be needed to deal with that situation.
