New Server, New Region

Pingdom Results

Since the spring of 2013, the Tux Reports Network was housed on a Digital Ocean droplet located in the San Francisco area. Unfortunately there were problems with the site being unavailable. According to pingdom, the server was not accessible for 2 hours and 5 minutes yesterday. In fact, 46 incidents over the past few days have happened.

Technical support at Digital Ocean kept stating there wasn’t a problem – but – there was clearly a problem. The site would load in 2 seconds on one attempt and up to 65 seconds in another. MattW took a look last night and did some optimizations but within an hour of his work the site slowed to a crawl.

This was not a good situation, therefore, the droplet was moved. These were the basic steps.

  • Take a snapshot
  • Change the region of the snapshot
  • Create a new droplet based on the snapshot
  • Change the DNS

The site has been loading without incident¬†since this move. While the loading on the WordPress side still needs some cleanup, it’s better than when the site was on a droplet in the SFO region.
