Hello everyone :)

To make a long story short, I moved hentairules.net to a new server. The obligation to update my server’s Debian was used as a chance to move to something better, as hardware grows cheaper and more powerful for web hosts : since everything must be reinstalled, why not reinstall it on something new and better ? :3

I hope everything works smoothly for you ? If you have issues, if something that used to work is now broken, if you see weird shit (one of my nightmares : wrongly imported special characters because of database encodings, I never understood that stuff), please, be sure to report it :)

Hentairules moved to a new server. Do you see a difference ?

  • Yep, it's faster :) (52%, 925 Votes)
  • Hmm, I don't seem to see a change... (44%, 781 Votes)
  • Bummer, it's slower :( (4%, 65 Votes)

Total Voters: 1,771

(Update : also, any idea guys, there’s weird things)

The fact that I'm refreshing this post every 30 seconds to look at the poll result's evolution, fearing wrong votes might show, does it mean I'm a freak, lol ? ^^;;

Woot ^^

I also waited a full day before asking in this poll, to make sure everyone had the new site, or else the tests would have been mood.
"Do the ten person who are shown the site on the new server notice this server is running fast because nobody else is on it ?" … that would have been less worthy, as poll results :D

I don't see changes because it worked good before, still good now, so I won't be angry ;)

For the moment, the results are ASTOUNDING, in my eyes.

Only 3% of people having a worse experience
40% not seeing a difference
57% seeing an improvement

Man, I'm thrilled :D

Regarding "weird things":
As you suspected by linking the relevant StackOverflow question, some page must be serving a PNG image embedded in the HTML. Maybe an ad provider, maybe something related to Wordpress. My guess would be that whomever is sending these requests is only expecting a URL (in the src attribute of the HTML img tag – ex. <img alt="" src="/images/pic.jpg"> instead of <img alt="" src="data:image…etc">), and therefore requests whatever is provided from the server (without checking whether it actually is a URL).

If it is only one IP, then it might be easiest to simply block it if it turns out it is burdening your new server too much, but it looks more like the client program at that IP just does not interpret base64 encoded images correctly.

You could try and look up to whom the IP address belongs: http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/108.162.210.24… . A quick look results in the name Cloudflare – if this site uses this, then maybe that tells you where to look next.

I would block if only because the access log didn't include a user agent (or referrer)

It's a bit faster loading. Before, I'd click and wait not-quite-a-second before the page would quickly load. Now, I click and no-wait for the page to slightly-more-quickly load.

Wasn't bad before, but improvements are improvements, so awesome! Thanks!

Saw a weird thing today at gmt+1 around 6:30

Your website was apparently down for a couple minutes. My browser could not connect to it.

After a couple minutes everything was working again

I'm not too sure with time conversions, but that might be the time my server performs its backups (once every two days). Or the server just screwed up, haha ^^
