I had made a few query optimizations this weekend to improve database update speed and accidentally forgot to take out my debugger.
This prevented comments on works from being added between 13:00PST and 19:30PST.
This bug has been resolved. I'm very sorry for the disruption in service.
FurryArtPile.com is moving servers. This move will begin Friday, March 21st, at 9PM PDT, and is expected to last up to 12 hours, until Saturday, March 22nd, 9AM PDT.
When the move is complete FAP will be able to offer much speedier access and service. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience with this move.
Thanks again for using FAP~
At about 6am this morning our works database server went down.
The culprit? A poorly optimized tag query was overloading the server.
The function has been rewritten and the works server is back online.
FAP has experience a sudden doubling of visitors in the last few days, slowing the site down considerably.
We were able to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem and have implemented a temporary fix.
Sorry about today's sluggishness; things should return to their usual peppy speediness now that the fix is in place.
Tomorrow morning we will be upgrading the controller (head-unit) for one of our filers that has been causing problems lately.
This upgrade will take place tomorrow, at 7am PDT Friday, August 3, 2007. It should only take about 30 minutes to swap in the new head-unit.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but we’re confident this will greatly improve speed and stability for FAP users.
