Re: Issue(s)

Note: Lestrades.com was down for 12 to 18 hours, I'm not sure how long exactly. When it started I was already in bed early due to headaches, and when I woke up I was unable to get in touch with the server admin (devotee) to ask him to relaunch the MySQL server which was the issue here.
I guess I finally found an e-mail address that works ;)

I need to consider moving to another server, though. Not being able to reboot it when I'm made aware of an issue isn't great. This wasn't the case when I started the website back in 2017, and there's no reason it should be a problem today. ;)

I'll look into it.

Guys, do you think it's worth moving to another server..?
I mean the other server might be a bit slower, although it's very close in specs it's also 8 years older (!).
Also, it'd take me time to reconfigure everything. :-/
But the pros would be:
- No more crashes, hopefully, and certainly not long ones,
- Freedom to install more stuff for my own development,
- More disk space available, so no "disk full" errors, and... I get to improve the database scraping system, by caching pretty much everything.

Yeah I think you should give it a try. VPS are cheap nowadays. No need to use an 8 year old server.

Linode have good prices

Way less value than dedibox and OVH (kimsufi, or their cloud stuff.)
I'm sticking to French companies anyway. The only time I dealt with a popular web hosting in the USA was a disaster.

Kimsufi vps'es are usually pretty good if we're talking about ovh.

Yes we are.
The beta version of Lestrade's was actually running on such a vps, but it quickly moved to a dedibox server. Performance was doubled overnight.

I've noticed the font changed recently. Not entirely convinced! I think the old one was better and smoother.
