Shiachat.com - New Server

Rate this topic

Salam Alaikum, and welcome to the new ShiaChat.com server!

If you haven't noticed by now, we're back on full throttle. This is a very expensive, advanced server that we hope will keep us up and alive for at least the next couple of years as we watch this community grow.

Over the past few months, we've had countless issues with corrupt databases, attacks, server loads and no-search functionality. Today, we bring back the site more powerful than ever, a safe secure site with automatic backups that will guarantee the integrity of shiachat.com for years to come. A search engine that returns over 1000 results in a matter of seconds rather than crash the server, RAID 160GB hard drives and many more. Welcome to a new ShiaChat.com :)

That's not to say we don't expect any downtime or issues at all, that would be setting the wrong expectations, but within the next few days, we'll work hard to guarantee that this server will remain as efficient as possible, and we can only do that by running some tests, trials and errors. Please do bare with us while we go through this process.

With that being said, welcome back home. We're still working on bringing back the other necessities such as Media section, books, etc. This should be done within the next 24 hours.

Thanks for the patience guys. It's amazing how when the site is down for over 24 hours, the second we bring it up, within 15 minutes we have over 150 guests browsing around - it makes the many hours invested in this by the few individuals working silently in the background truly worthwhile.

Thanks once again for your support and patience.

- Administration

Great job, and thanks for all the hard work! Now that the search is back and better, alhamdulillah, proving certain misguided ppl in the shia/sunni forum will be faster and easier (thanks also to the hard work of previous posters!). Jazakallah!!!

(salam)

It is always nice to see you back. Eventhough I have notice your server being down many-many times , or very-very slowwww.... but I love this site. It is my place to relax.... and learn.

In my oppinion it is not easy being popular and worth to visit. Especially with the ugly competitor.

I always pray, Siachat always one step better everyday. Insya Allah !

Good job! Bravo! for your team work.
