    We've moved to a new server, which should have more resources. One good thing about the new host is that future upgrades should be seamless.

    How does performance seem so far? Better? Worse?

    The Gallery uploads were broken, and I fixed that. Attachment thumbnails aren't appearing, and I'm working on that.

    Any other glitches?

    Pages seem to be loading a little faster for me so far!

    That's good to hear. I'm working with the new host to do some more optimization, so hopefully we can improve on that. My goal is for the site to be downright snappy in 2012.

    This morning there have been several responses to a thread I'm subscribed to and I haven't received any notifications. Not sure why, whether it might be related to the server change or not. Otherwise I haven't had any indication that anything has changed.

    Good one, Amin :biggrin:

    Site seems to be snappy-er than it was before the switch. But probably won't be truly snappy until they install the electronic shutter. :)rofl:)

    Happy new year, all. :2thumbs:

    I've noticed a little weirdness just now:

    "
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_editor.php on line 93

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_editor.php on line 93"

    Also, after changing my avatar it brought me to a blank page and I had to reload from the main page.

    (I'm commenting to provide feedback, overall the change seems positive).

    Yes, I know about these errors. They are because of a change we just made on the server and will have this worked out soon.

    Hi,

    Good to have the new server.
    I had a glitch today starting the Mu43 app on my iPad: the first time I started it, I had "server sent an unknown ..." error message and it jammed in "Logging in..." screen.

    However, after I killed the app (double-clicking the main button on iPad, long-pressing the app and then clicking on the remove icon) and starting the app again, it started to work. I only had to log in again.

    The speed seems pretty much the same as before (with the app it has been fast enough for me all the time).

    Panu

    No speed or reliability issues before and server change did not reduce the amount of those non existent issues :biggrin:

    I'm getting sporadic erros messages both here and in Serious compacts. Something about "Invalid arguments".

    The present.
    I am seeing a lot of intermittent

    "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_editor.php on line 93"


    Line number varies of course and there are usually between two and five of these per page.

    Regards,

    woof!

    I've had several error messages and the site was down completely for me today until not long ago.
    At the top of the page I'm seeing now is:
    Warning: require() [function.require]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in /home/asabet/public_html/mu-43.com/vbseo.php on line 1392
    Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/global.php on line 623
    Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/newreply.php on line 83
    Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/newreply.php(742) : eval()'d code on line 1

    Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/includes/functions_newpost.php on line 1709


    and here's another (result for going to page 1 of a thread):

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_editor.php on line 93
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_editor.php on line 93

    Invalid arguments, and sometimes disconcerting "banned for life" messages =:-o

    I am aware of all the problems. No one has been banned. I'm working on a solution.

    Figured as much. Just wanted to pass along, so other folks know they aren't alone.

    Well, I was banned for a while (no reason) after getting the most amazing set of error messages. Then I deleted some autofill options from preferences in safari. It let me login so I assume the new server has forgiven me.:flowers_2:

    Weird day.

    I also have big problems on logging in. Sometimes it makes me log in, others it just gives me error messages, others it says I have no permission. Now I can write but only in quick reply mode.
    Hope will resolve as soon as possible. Getting me crazy.
