Been spending a bit of time.

I've been spending some time on Midnight12 with setting up DNS and getting everything ready to make the site possible. Perfect setup. One should figure that a tube is supposed to be uploaded to - but I stumbled into a problem considering upload and Cloudflare. They have a filesize limit for uploads making it impossible for me to keep using them because it's simply to small. 100MB (500MB with an Enterprise solution) doesn't even cover 5mins of video means I need to supply myself with DNS server. Good thing is that the server i purchased from OVH comes with everything: DNS, WWW, FTP, MySQL and all bells and whistles which basically means I can move from Cloudflare onto my own premises. Let's see how the site works when it has moved. I kinda got to like their statistics, but I have my own as well :-) I also finally tweaked Apache2, MySQL and PHP so the settings should be perfect for hosting a large amount of visitors daily. The problem occured while I was trying to upload larger videos, I simply could not understand why the server kept disconnecting/refusing connection after a few moments of uploading. I finally found the culprit and uploads work again.

Cloudflare CDN

I moved CDN (Content Delivery Network) to Cloudflare for my site GlovM.com to test them out a bit. It seems Cloudflare works better than the one my hosting provider is serving.
Here are the stats from the last 24h on Cloudflare. Seems OK to me :)
