In time for Christmas... moblog's new server is up and running. Very fast!

Moblog has a new server. We've upgraded both our hardware and our software. More up to date versions of everything should mean a much faster and more stable site. Some things may be a little wobbly for the next couple of days, but we're working hard to make sure it's all OK. If you spot any issues, please let someone know here or via the contact page.

If you have a custom domain, you'll need to update your records. The new IP address is

For the technically inclined, the specs are - Quad Core Intel Xeon 2.53Ghz CPU, 8GB RAM, 4 x 500GB disks in a RAID array. Debian Linux operating system.

Thanks Mat

There may be some glitches and weird-outs that I haven't spotted. Please do mention anything that seems wrong. Email posting seems a little flaky right now, but that might be down to the DNS update still propagating - that should fix itself in no more than 48 hours.

ALL [anything] domains are currently wrong and I'm chasing the domain hosts to fix that asap.

One other thing you might spot is that new posts and new comments and so on might not make it to the latest page immediately - this is due to our shiny new caching system, so give it a few minutes and it should update. It's a known issue and it is deliberate. A few minutes between cache updates hugely reduces the load on the system.

Thanks Mat I know that this hasn't been an easy task but so worth it.

And earthlad comments welcome. The idea was to have a place to communicate.

Hi peeps im confused about how google and other search engine saves and finds links and sites, any tips on getting my moblog to appear in google? for instance if I sent @mail with pics and story and all the code for tags and location is that better than posting a pic and then adding tags and location, and adding more pics, n links, please

Earthlad says:

Ps, can people allow comments from non blogers yet?

13th Dec 2011, 21:32

Viv says:

afraid I've no idea - but sure lots do

as for the non bloggers access we don't seem to have much of a problem now - just be grateful if you remove any spam arriving on your blog

Anyone else having problems with the map? (And the forum, which is why i'm posting this here...)

I type "Nottingham, UK" and it asks me to choose between "Nottingham, UK" and "Nottingham, Highland KW3, UK". I click the first option... and nothing happens. So my photos aren't making it to my map :(

Wendle says:

Urgh, forget it. Moblog's "quirks", honestly. I just typed NG1 and it was fine.

moblogmods says:

Wendle - the forum has been temporarily disbandoned partially due to heavy spam

I should think it is on the to do list - but meanwhile here is fine.

To answer my own question - how to get your blogs noticed, is a short and interesting blog, the naming of the original pic seems to be most important, just thought id share.
