    Welcome to the new and improved biblewheel.com - we are now running on Linux

    After three weeks of 10 hour days, I have finally finished the migration of this site to a new Linux server. It was a very big project because the old part of the site (about a thousand pages) was written between 2001 and 2009 using Microsoft products (ASP and MS SQL Server), whereas the forum runs on PHP and MySQL. It was hosted on a Windows server and Windows is notoriously slow when rendering PHP pages. Sometimes it was so bad that forum pages would simply time out and fail to render at all. This should all be in the past now.

    I learned first hand how poorly Windows handles PHP when trying to solve similar timeouts and delays on my wife's blog godandbutterfly.net. It was nothing but a simple WordPress blog that should have responded instantly (as it does now) but it was hosted on a Windows Server and so there were times she couldn't even successfully submit a post!

    The migration took a lot of time and effort because I had to rewrite all the ASP code for the Full Text Gematria Database including both the front-end ASP pages as well as the back-end database (and stored procedures) which now uses MySQL.

    Now as with any migration to a new server, there may be some issues here or there that I've missed. Please post any anomalies (missing links, missing pics, missing pages, whatever) that you see so I can fix them. If possible, avoid Internet Explorer because it does not seem to follow internet standards. I tested the new pages and they work perfectly in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, but there are some (non-critical formatting) anomalies in IE.

    With that - it's time to celebrate! Write lots of posts!

    If the formatting on any page looks weird, the first thing to do is to refresh the page (hit F5). This is because old style sheets may have been stored in your browser's cache. If it still looks weird after refreshing the page, post the info here and I will fix it.

    The response time is quite a bit better (first byte in 1 sec rather then 5!). And there are still some other things I can do to optimize it more. So I'm quite happy.

    I'll get to your latest post after I finish a few things.
