Troublesome website launch!

You have probably seen that the new website has seen a lot of downtime since it’s launch. The demand for checking out the website, in combination with a heavier codebase made the old server to be put to it’s knees and eventually crash (several times).

I have now put the website on a dedicated VPS (virtual private server) and have put CloudFlare (a content delivery network + security) in place.

For the people who are interested, the server is running a LEMP (Linux, NGINX, MySQL and PHP) setup. I have chosen NGINX instead of Apache because of its speed and low resources. If you want more info, please let me know! 🙂

Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope you can enjoy the new Carendt.com without problems now!

    Yes, I echo David’s words. Well done Gert.

    I have picked out a layout to build in the future. It’s the “Works” by Vincent Wesstein. It’s going to be built in TT scale.

    Regards,
    Bernd
