Blog changes

Right, playing around with my blog again. Wasn’t really that happy anymore with my nginx rproxy caching. Especially that for some reason, lately, every (php) request got at least one hit to the backend Apache server, while it used to cache the generated html for 30 mins.

And well, performance just wasn’t good enough. So I said bye to one.rootspirit.com, and hi to vm1.rootspirit.com a couple of days ago. Vm1 is no longer the nginx proxy, but is hosting my whole blog now. No more Apache for me.

Now to see if performance increases and if it was any point in changing.

Oh, and all static/upload/image requests are now rewritten to a new domain (static.0x04.com). Gives me to option to move static pages to a different webserver/host in the future. And why 0x04.com and not static.yeri.be or static.tuinslak.org ? Well, don’t know. Just like my “0x04” domain name! 😀

Oh well… Just playing around…

    Hehe, love the domain name and placeholder 🙂 Excellent choice for delivering static content. I assume the new domain has cookie-free settings for minimal request overhead. If not, it may improve your performance a little more.

    You’ll never regret abandoning apache ^^ I use lighttpd and/or nginx for a couple of years now… rails like a train!

    Yes, it’s very much cookie free. 🙂 And nginx puts a long expire-header for caching.

  4. […] a side note, this blog has been moved from vm1 (and one before that) a virtual machine running on a dual Xeon 3070 (2.66Ghz) at Databarn to […]
