**And we're back bigger and better! **
So the story begins with a small server receiving about a day's worth of public posts at once and being a bit overwhelmed by all this...
In the moments after it started to become unstable and crash, that's why if you have tried to access the site in the last 15 to 30 minutes you might have seen a message saying it couldn't be reached for maintenance or because it was too busy, because it was!
So since a few weeks it was already obvious that the current server config was becoming was too small for what it was growing in.
I've tried to trick it into freeing as much ressources as I could but in the end it could barely hold the load.
So long story short, I made a generous donation to myself, and upgraded the server until next January where I would need to have around 800 CHF to renew the hosting for a year. Yeah I know it's a big number, specially knowing that currently I have around 2$ of recurring donations per week (not counting single donations).
So I might be able to renew it myself, but I also might not we never know... So this is a call for a renewed action for donations to keep this service running at the current specs level. (btw I literally doubled the power, to 4 cpu and 12G of ram)
So pretty please gimme money lol ! ;) Liberapay donation
I will be eternally grateful!
Your devoted podmin!
