Hello forum people!

Last 6 months the performance of the forum improved a lot. The forum loads much faster nowadays. Last summer the forum was loading very slow (often 10 seconds or more to view a page) and frequently 'internal server errors' occured. I'm still not completely satisfied with the current server, because it runs 'out of memory' a few times each week and causes the server to crash. Usually it's rebooted fast, so downtime is limited to 15 minutes or a few hours.

I'm now testing an other server. You can find it here:
http://www.cycling-colours.nl/forum (with a '-' between Cycling and Colours)

I've just installed the forum software and imported a recent backup of the cyclingcolours.nl forum.

Please test it the next few days, and let me know if you, or the server, runs into problems (memory, speed, logging in, missing posts/images/other items, browsing topics, searching, post/edit message, wrong foreign language charactersets, etc). The new/test forum should work with your normal username and password.

The chat plug-in is not installed at the new server yet. (will be done beginning of next week)

At this new server it should be possible for the forum software to determine the dimensions of images (in posts, avatars and signatures). That was not, or only partial, possible at the cyclingcolours.nl server. Current settings are: images in posts 600x600 pixels; avatars minimum 50x50 / maximum 100x100; signature 600x100 pixels (width x height).

And of course a redesign (colours, images, layout) is still at my to-do list...

Regards, Martijn.

The performance of the new test server (I just took http://www.cycling-colours.nl offline) looked perfect and better than the current server (since august 2007) which has still some reliability issues.

I decided to move to the new server.
During the upcoming movement (exact time schedule unknown yet) http://www.cyclingcolours.nl [including forum] will be unreachable.
The mirror domain http://www.cyclingcolours.com [including forum] will stay active, independent from http://www.cyclingcolours.nl .

This morning the Cycling Colours Fansite & Forum are moved to a new server. The new server should be more reliable and load a bit faster.

A backup of all messages (made before & AM today) are succesfully restored to the database.

If you have a problem to log in to the Forum, please try to empty the cookies & temp internet files/cache from your browser.

To do list:
- re-install the Chatroom (later this week)
