Server Issues

Good morning, Disney pals! I know the website has been a chore to access during peak hours. I made some database optimizations these past couple days along with some script enhancements and yet the site still bogs down. The issue is with the database which can only handle a certain amount of connections due to the hardware it is on. I am looking into renting a newer box with better hardware. The cost is significantly more, but that comes with growth. I am thankful for all of our sponsors and supporters! Please be patient as I work on this. Thanks!

Steve is the founder and administrator of D-COT. If anything breaks on the site, @TheSwedishChef is the founder and administrator.


  1. Thank you for the update Steve! We know you work very, very hard for this, and us. We all appreciate you and what you do more than you know. :heart:

  2. Steve, thanks so much for continually looking for ways to provide a smooth user experience. I am grateful to you for all the time and effort, first for dreaming up and creating the site, and second for always working to make it even better. One of my favorite preachers used to say “Be humbly grateful…not grumbly hateful.” I choose to be humbly grateful to you. :)

  4. Thank you, Steve, for everything you do here and for working so hard to make this site such an awesome place for all of us! :heart: This community means so much to me, and to so many others who come here every day. Is there any way that we could make donations toward the increased cost of the upgrade? I would be more than happy to contribute! D-Cot has given me so much, that I would love to be able to give something back. :heart:
