Now in it’s 2nd year, iBlog has outgrown it’s server. I was getting complaints about how slow pages would load. We re purposed another server which was more powerful and installed Linux on it. I have been very happy with the new server and installing Apache, PHP, and Mysql could not have been easier.
Moving to the new server did not happen without incident. We moved files from a Mac Server to a Linux Server and there were all kinds of File Permission issues as well as MySql Database issues because the new server was operating with version 5 while the old server had version 4. After 6 days of working on it, the new server runs flawlessly and has dramatically improved performance in the classrooms where teachers were using blogs.
I look forward to getting more teachers using iBlog for classroom websites.
