Just a quick update to notify you we have successfully transitioned to DigitalOcean and upgraded our forums to the latest instalment of IPS 4. The server move has already proved to be a positive change in terms of performance and financial costs. We are now running PHP 5.6 and switched over from MySQL to MariaDB to follow the original developers - there's an article on this to bring you up to speed. Although releases have become less frequent, we do plan on catching up with the latest OpenSSL and DC++ security related exploits as soon as we can. Cologic provided an insightful article on some of the changes we're looking to include, alongside that pesky NMDC exploit.
At peak times, apexdc.net can receive over 30,000 visitors a day and 12 requests per second. This is why we're always monitoring and looking for ways to improve our server performance. Today the site will be moved to our newly built web server running the latest technology ready to handle future releases. We have temporarily disabled any auto updates while the process is completed and I will add an update to this post as soon as my DNS updates on the new server. Update: If you see this message you're on our new server (details inside).
