Highly variable - sometimes the pages load in a blink, other times the "waiting for www.rawpaleodietforum.com" lasts 10 seconds or longer.

I did some web server optimizing settings.
I also made some SMF forum optimization settings, notice the avatar slow loading problem should go away.
Also adjusted topics to show 25 posts per page before clicking to the next page.

this new dedicated machine just froze on me.

I haven't figured out what happened.

Will have to test it longer.

I wasn't able to access rawpaleoforum at all 6 hours ago.

I'm experiencing long stretches of no access, too. The old server was not agonizingly slow.

Why do these bugs happen every now and then  to the various forums I've visited in the past? Is it always hackers being stupid or just that modern technology is still way too primitive?

I have a new server. i7-3770 ivy bridge, 32 GB memory, 2 x 3TB hard drives.
The processor is cutting edge too new.
The Linux OS I installed is Ubuntu 12.04.1 and it seems to be flaky with it. 
I upgraded Ubuntu to the latest edition and will hope it settles the matter.

If it still freezes once or twice... I will replace ubuntu 12.04.1 with CentOS 6.3

Which is a good amount of labor.  So I hope the ubuntu 12.04.1 latest upgrade holds.

That's the base operating system.  We are using Oracle Virtualbox for the virtualization. The actual web server runs on a virtual machine using ubuntu 10.04 which is stable.  The mysql database is mysql 5.5 on the ubuntu server itself.

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on the same CPU (i7-3770K), haven't had any problems.
I'd suggest you Debian if possible, I'm only running Ubuntu because that's the only thing I managed to install with this new UEFI BIOS.

Debian 6.x was my first choice but the freezing was a lot worse in my other i7 3770 servers, some 4x a day. 

Before this last ubuntu upgrade, the freezing was some 3 plus days.  But i have a similar ubuntu 12 thats stable in another setup.

The ones with centos 6.3 are rock solid so far.  Even if i had to add the mod to use JFS for my file system.

The ubuntu 12s use ext4. 

Its a quirk with the ext 4 bug that virtualbox complains about if you use ext 4 and your kernel is below 3.

Seems this latest ubuntu 12.04.1 is holding up for the moment.

Yes, it happened during my sleeping time.
I then upgraded Ubuntu 12.04.1 to the latest kernel now at Linux version 3.2.0-32 with ext-4

If it freezes again, that will be the last straw.
And I will have to next change to CentOS 6.3 with JFS

I can't access rawpaleoforum with Comodo Dragon. After about a week of trying I decided to try Firefox and it worked.
"In the modern, prevailing view of the cosmos, we sit here as tiny, unimportant specks of protoplasm, flukes of nature, and stare out into an almost limitless void. Vast, nameless tracts of emptiness dominate the scene. Talk about feeling small.
But we do not look out at the universe; it is, instead, within us, as a rich 3-D visual experience whose location is the mind" - R. Lanza, Beyond Biocentrism.

FEEDBACK: "Show unread posts since last visit" works differently than it used to.

Old way: All unread posts were listed until I read them, even if I closed the browser and returned later.

New way that I do not like: If I click "Show unread posts since last visit," the list of unread posts is displayed. Then, if I close the browser window and come back later to read more of the unread posts, the refreshed list does not display the posts that were previously listed but still unread.

Can the old way be restored?

I tried accessing rawpaleoforum this morning and failed miserably until mid-afternoon.

This server is screwed.
I'm moving out my virtual machines to the backup machines.
I am reformatting this server and hopefully it comes out better.
In the meantime, in the next few hours I am reinstalling... so this server will be on and off.

I just reinstalled this machine with CentOS 6.3 as the base OS.
Hoping for a more stable experience.
Will have to proceed to tweaking in the next few hours.

Ah, back to normal, for the moment.  I never realised modern technology was still so haphazard. Thanks, GS, I realise it's a lot of work.

Now this rawpaleodietforum.com should be ultimately faster.

I have separated physically the database to a separate dedicated server.

So the website server is still in the same server.
