NIM Posted April 11, 2008 Share Posted April 11, 2008 Dear all,as I wanted to improve our rank in the search engines, along with giving us better experience with browsing the forums and searching what we need, I've decided to implement SEO for IPB, or in long Search Engine Optimization!More can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimizationThe installation itself was a 3 step process.1. I've uploaded all of the files from "upload" folder to my server preserving the folder structure.2. I've installed CommunitySEO module as I was instructed to (Sucesfully installed)After that I've browsed a bit in admin cp and was checking the SEO options and possibilities, not touching anything yet..3. I've edited all of the required IPB files locally and then uploaded them to the server. (This is where the problems started).I got server timeouts through FTP or HTTP access and the site was down. WinCert.net is located on a semi-dedicated server with 8x Intel Xeon CPU E5430 @ 2.66 GHz with 4 Gigs of RAM. Our host said that some SEO script knocked down the whole RAM usage (4GB) and server was knocked-out! Each time the server started and someone visited the OFFLINE forum page, we were in trouble.As I suspected, the problem was in one or more edited files. As soon as I uploaded original (backuped) files back to the server, everything resumed to normal.Now the server is running smoothly as before, but without SEO (still need to upload edited files from IPB).As we're trying to figure out what's the cause of this issue, they may be a small downtimes in the near future, although we'll probably test it on some other server.Until we successfully install the SEO module on WinCert.net, I ask you to be patient.WinCert.net Administration Team.
