Seemed to gradually grind to a halt over an hour or so. The whole server is down again. :(

Yeah you answered your own question:
[quoteffc14]Its 2 different URLs but its the same forum.[/quoteffc14]

Your browser doesn't know it's the same site, so it won't supply the cookie. It just checks the url.

It's still being tweaked some what ...

We never planned for or anticipated the number of visitors it got the first day (300+ in the first few minutes). The board kept going but MySQL was installed with a default configuration so decided to take a vacation quite early on :D

Since then Bart and Frank have been trying various config changes to apache and MySQL to better cope with the average visitors (hovering around 60-80) and the odd spike (120+). Of course it's also handling the bugs and in-links pages plus a couple of other sites (IIRC). It's not doing too badly for a P3-750 I think :)
