Server SpeedupsAugust 14, 2011 8:58 pm
Your friendly neighborhood server administrator Corbin here, just commenting on a few improvements that have been made under the hood which should speed things up pretty massively and improve everybody’s experience. We’ve switched the web server software that we’re using from the venerable Apache to the speedier, smaller nginx, and as a result, things are faster and the server is performing better under high load. That should help with things like getting posted to Reddit.
Take it easy, ~ C.
