Server Upgrade Complete! Finally on the latest Debian 64-bit Linux!

NewsI have been considering this upgrade for over a year and this weekend I sat down and moved all sites onto the latest version of Debian Linux 8.4.

The move took most of the day Sunday and  Monday, (so much for having a holiday), and all seems to have gone quite well. If anyone finds any issues please let me know.

Server Upgraded Issues, So the Upgrade is on Hold, for now…

IT-operations-computer-crash-worriedDiscretion bring the better part of valor I have decided that due to the issues I encountered while switching over to Debian 8.1 need a bit more research before I commit to a move.

The good news though is that the server RAM is now fully upgraded and there is 5.2gb dedicated to this site.

Stay tuned to this channel for the latest breaking news!

The server is getting a small upgrade.

transcend-jm667qlu-2g-400x400-imad4fzrxdn5kn8q Currently the server runs on a machine that has 3 gigabytes of RAM. That RAM is shared with Windows 7, which means the actual Linux Virtual Machine (VM) runs on about 1.7 gb of RAM.

Early next week I’ll be adding an additional 2 gb of RAM to the server and allocating roughly 500-750 mb to the VM here.  That should improve performance a little. It will also help my Windows 7 run a bit more efficiently.

I know that this is probably not a concern to those who occasionally read this page, but for anyone wishing to run a site here, it will make a great deal of difference.
