The Garage Crowd site
's host computer gets replacement hardware and goes back on-line at it's permanent location in Zen's shop. It was a very easy change over. The index page on our temporary computer (the Azure dragon
) was replaced with a changeover message, the dynamic data copied via FTP and the DNS record changed. Within minutes, the processes was finished and Zen had his sites back on-line and on his systems.
Zen commented it was the easiest hardware change he ever did. And the efficiency at which the change over was done was very nice. Good work Zen!
What kind of traffic increase did DrQue.net network see for hosting the Garage Crowd site
? On the 29th, instead of our average 4,300 hits per day we typically receive, we hit over 11,400 and the 28th we received 7,500. Our 3rd highest hitting day was the 2nd of the month where we received over 6,600. So yes, the Garage Crowd site
brought in quite a bit of traffic.
This was a fun test-- seeing how fast we can change over a pretty active dynamic website to different hardware and back again. I think we faired very well and learned a lot.
