Talk:November 2005 image server

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

I think the more servers and connections you guys have, the better you can spread it all around. Yes, a central server was a very bad idea because it doesn't really create a good balance. Hope you guys actually figure out how to solve this problem. - Cyberman (wikipedian)

Excellent! I noticed yesterday that the Wikipedia:Facebook was in the running for the "Slowest Loading Page on the Internet" Award. (BTW: I wonder if there is such a thing?) --OldCommentator -- 01:52, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Finally, thanks. I had random pictures not appearing and it took ages for others to load. I hope it will get better ;-) -- 02:23, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

I just thought how perhaps the phrase "graphics" should be used instead of "image" because of the greater ambiguity issues with the former. In the context of computer upgrades the ambiguity is increased. Anyway, good luck! -- 03:35, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Yay! -- Perfecto Canada 05:11, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Any idea when it's gonna be done? I have a ton (30+) photos I'm going to upload to the commons! Miborovsky 07:32, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Good. I thought it was just my connection that was slow (which is weird since I have broadband). Now I know there is nothing wrong with my end. Anyway, good luck. vw12 08:15 22 November 2005 (UTC)

This is good news. How much does it cost? -- 09:29, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

when uploading will be possible again? is it just taking a huge ammount of time to copy files or is there some other hold-up to reenabling uploading? 18:41, 22 November 2005 (UTC) Plugwash 18:53, 22 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Great! Wikipedia is using lighttpd!!

great! i've been hoping for this more and more lately. thanks.


Is it possible to open the Wikisource upload directory too? Now I get the notice: "The upload directory (/mnt/upload3/wikisource/nl) is not writable by the webserver." — empoor™ (consultation) 11:51, 23 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

However, even though this server is in place, some pages still take a long time to load

Upload pictures[edit]

Still it is impossible to upload pictures. When will this possible again?Rasbak 10:49, 25 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]
