    Server Maintenance: MySQL downgrade

    This is a note to all members.

    The site will be down from 9 PM to 10 PM. I hope no further down time is needed.

    The things that need to be done:

    MySQL downgrade. 4.0 --> 3.23
    Apache config cleanup
    general MySQL maintenance (Optimizing tables)

    The downtime will be minimal, but could last up to one hour. Please do not be alarmed, as we will be back ASAP.

    Sorry for the extra downtime. After some testing it was found that MySQL 3.23 does not work well either.

    I found a few hacks to make MySQL 4.0 faster on FreeBSD, and installed them. Currently we are back up and running with no expected downtime anywhere in the future.

    We thank you for sticking with us, once again sorry for the extra downtime.
