okay, so for the past week, the site has been experiencing a lot of slowness. And with the spike of traffic, it's not making things any better. so for the next few days, i will be to play around with the server. Unfortunately, I will on all fours and my hands are probably gonna get very dirrty (urm, it's all dirrty to begin with, lol). Yeah, I really have to go deep down to see what's causing the slowness and at the same time install new server services to increase performance & speeds and not forgetting improvement in caching methods. At the moment, we already have 2 levels of caching - one using a wordpress plugin and another method created by me. I might even have to add another method of caching. On the site, current we have caching in place for "download counts" and "play counts". That's why the download statistic always seem constant or stuck at 0 for a long span of time (up to 2 hours or maybe more). It doesn't mean nobody is visiting the site or is nobody is playing any of the tracks. You're be surprised by the number of actual downloads we get a day! it's crazy high! Back to topic: I already done a lot of reading and have a game plan, so don't worry! You will still get the best dirrty experience* as always.
So if you see weird errors around the site or weird extra terrestrial happenings, just be patient. It's probably me on all fours tweaking codes or rewiring the cables or maybe even ripping the RAM out and literally RAM it with my imaginary bulldozer! Yeah, it does get pretty intense! Let the work begin! will send an update when it's done :)
If you're too lazy to read the whole thing or very clueless at this point of time,
i think i can explain it in one sentence:
I'm remixing the servers with cool beats and making it better than the current server
time to get my geek on!
