Hardfought’s new home

By K2 on December 4th, 2016 at 4:37 am EST

Back in August I mentioned that I was contemplating getting away from shared web hosting and serving the Hardfought website from my home. There’s no real reason to spend the money every year for a site that gets minimal traffic, and I have plenty of bandwidth here. So I bought the hardware a couple months ago, and found the time to finish the process. If you’re reading this, then your ISP’s DNS servers have received the update – Hardfought now lives in my basement ;) Had a few hiccups during the migration, but nothing I couldn’t handle. Long story short, phpBB3 and PHP 7.x don’t play nice. Found some tweaks and code fixes that resolved the issues I was seeing, so we’re all good. Learned quite a bit in the process as well, since it’s been over ten years since I’ve hosted a website locally… in a very real sense, we’ve come full circle after 16+ years of existence. Running Ubuntu server 16.04 w/ LAMP configuration. Hosting my business website on the same dedicated box. I think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised with the much faster load times and smoother functionality.

Technically, I could throw a CS port on it as well, the amount of resources available are crazy compared to what we had available in the past. Hmm :)

Anyways. Next time you visit, post something. Dig into your profile, play with settings, etc. If you notice any bugs, lemme know. Thanks gang.

    I did fire up DAoC on my Surface a month or so ago. MiniNad was playing but our schedules never jived. Since i didn’t know anyone, i quit again.

    Bleh :( with as many kids as you have, I don’t see how you’d have the time. I barely have time to play the occasional nethack game, and it’s turn-based.

    If a server shows up I’ll install windows just to get a few frags on sX and KC
