Site moving
« on: January 27, 2012, 10:21:10 AM »

Hello everyone!

We've just decided to move from our current server hosting, it's just too expensive. We're looking for cheap (or free) solutions to move everything (or most of the things) from the current server.

This is the point where we need your knowledge. We need ideas, from which we can choose the best. We're open to suggestions on either server-hosting or site-hosting.

The minimum requirements for a site-hosting are to be able to host the forum, the wiki and the Subversion source code repository. Good to have features: ssh access, backups, mail forwarding.

Looking forward to your ideas,
the aMule Team

They have services as Webhosting from only 1,49 eur/month, but also Linux VPS from 12,99 eur/month.

Maybe we could just split forums and source code...

Maybe separated they are available totally free.

Or what's about sourceforge? I think we can host a forum there as well!

Fabio, I don't think any of these allows creation of a forum like this, let alone moving the existing data. Same problem with the wiki.

I've been considering that, too. SVN, bug tracker and wiki are OK. Forum is a problem, they have only another forum solution. But maybe with separating the forum from the other parts, we can do it for free.

Hello,

At peak usage, what is the site/forum/page CPU & RAM usage?
What is the monthly traffic?

Well, a forum could be hosted on a free hoster like 000webhost as well!

Peak RAM+swap usage is the main thing.

There are loads of cheap virtual servers based on openVZ. Unmetered traffic so that dosn't matter.

The problem with an openVZ VPS is that you can't have your own swap file, swap is shared by all the virtual machines.
Software tends not to handle "sorry no more RAM available for you" well so as soon as you use all the RAM somthing falls over.

Santrex.net has some VPS packages that  might be suitable.
512MB(burstable to 1GB), 45GB of diskspace, unmetered traffic for $9 a month. Should be just enough for apache+SMF.

They have zen VPS as well.
