Site Problems

On Tuesday we added an SSL certificate so you get the green lock (nearly wrote cock!) symbol in your browser meaning TimWorstall.com is now secure. We just want to steal your data, cash and voting intentions…

We also doubled the ram and processing power of the server so hopefully it’s quicker to access.

If the site still looks a bit broken clear you browser cache.

    Interesting. Most people have their sites hosted professionally, and the web servers are virtual ones in a cloud – so that RAM and processing power are not important limits. Talking about these suggests that you run your site on a specific (dedicated?) machine.

    That’s a lot of work for someone. I do the same thing for several hobby web-sites, and find that it’s an arm and a leg of work just to keep up with updates….

  2. Dodgy Geezer; somehow I doubt it, the box might have more capability, but it still looks likely to be a shared virtual host, cf. the posting too quickly message, which suggests a peculiar attempt to manage writes on, or bandwidth to, the database, in particular, something at the CMS level that isn’t handling individual sessions at all well.

    Indeed. But why does that argue for a virtual host? If you have a machine which

    1 – accepts messages
    2 – runs them through some check process
    3 – writes them to a database
    4 – looks for another message,

    then you are going to present an error message to any message update process during 2) and 3). Virtual or not should make no difference…

  4. DG; mangled English, really, while trying to address two separate things. You’re right, as outlined that process is independent of the underlying config.

    As you say, private servers are an awful lot of work, SVH is common. For off-the-shelf software, SVH configs are a safe bet.

    I did suggest many times to Tim & Richard they should host CT & TW on a VPS with unique IPV4 & 6 IPs at very low cost. VPS with 10Gb/s 1TB/Mth traffic cost me Euro 20pa

    Whoosh, flew straight past them iirc Richard prefers AWS plus other third party strange providers.

  6. View from Solent – yes. I even unsubscribed and subscribed again. Last post in the feed is the one entitled Facts, So Patriarchal

  7. “Since the certificate renewal the RSS Feed is not updating

    Have you tried refreshing your RSS feed sources?”

    I don’t use RSS, I just look at the links many other sites have on their sidebars. For instance, Mark Wadsworth’s blog hasn’t shown a new TW post for 2 days now. All his other links are regularly updating, so I don’t see how It can be anything his end?
