Due to the loading on the current dedicated server causing regular server crashes, I have decided to move CA and other hosted blogs to a new server with twice as much memory (2GB) and utilizing a proper server-oriented Linux rather than using a general purpose Linux. It demonstrates that if you’re going to do serious hosting, then you need to plan ahead rather than hope that your current benchtest system will do the job – it will, but not reliably long term.
At the moment, I am trying to decide between CentOS5 or SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.
What this will mean is that sometime in the next 2 weeks, CA will go offline for a few hours while the DNS updates around the world. I will let everyone know closer to the time when this is likely to occur.
