In case you missed that MASSIVE fifteen minute downtime (longest fifteen minutes I've ever waited patiently through as CPanel did all the work)... *cough*


Let's try this over. Hello, everyone! We're on new hardware.

Everyone give a big thanks to the following:
= IsmAvatar for forking over half the price of the server
= Gary for installing the gobs of software we apparently depend on
= a2h for debugging his CSS and apparent dependency on the aforementioned software
= And of course, me, for my expedient remedy of all other aspects of this migration

Now you should be able to click a fucking wiki link without sixteen minutes of latency.
Enjoy.

@a2h: these fonts are oversized and hideous. Please fix them.

Thank god, it was getting very bad before and would have likely pushed away new people visiting the site. We should really thank you and ism extra though since you're paying for it :]

Hopefully it should hold together now, right?

I honestly don't know wtf I'm talking about but hopefully I can muddle my way through.

Great. I also thank Ism and Josh for this (and Gary and a2h).

On a related note: Is there a way I could get to wiki's sql? I don't want to modify anything, but I am trying to create a manual type of thing and what I do now is get the whole page and just cut out the article. It would be a lot faster, less bandwidth intensive and easier if I could get the article from the database at the first place. Maybe some read only account could be made (is there even such a thing)?

Fixed the font stuff! Was a minor error in the asset serving script.

I didn't notice anything, but I wasn't looking for anything either.

It's because my asset thingo tells your browser to cache the stylesheet for a bit =P

And you'll be hearing about it if this thing ever slows down, daz. Since you recommended it to us, you are implicitly liable for any and all bitching.

Consider using the wiki's bot API. It won't get you direct access to the mysql, but it will bypass the parser that generates the html for the page.
http://enigma-dev.org/docs/wiki/api.php?action=query&prop=revisions&rvprop=content&rvlimit=1&format=xml&titles=<<PageTitleGoesHere>>

Thank you. I will look into this. Looks promising. Though it seems that I will somehow need to get formatting back.

edit: Who would of taught.. after several hours of checking the API and looking into ways to parse wikitext markup I came up on this:
"http://enigma-dev.org/docs/wiki/index.php?title=<<PageTitleGoesHere>>&action=render"
That returns just what I need.
