Server Spruce Up


Staff member
The site was feeling a bit slow as of late so I have performed some well-overdue server maintenance and cleaned up old files, hopefully things should run a lot smoother now. If it comes to it I’ll upgrade the site to a better virtual server but as I choose to run this site not for profit, no donations/sponsors or advertising, I’d rather avoid this where possible.

While OS security patches are run automatically in the background, this doesn’t cover absolutely everything and due to the way the Discourse platform works there was a tonne of old copies of the site hogging the disk space.

If you’re finding CF is running slow at any point though do let me know.
