Fun fact: the reason why the archive is such a hassle to host, it that it's about 1,013,509 files big.
On it's own, it's about 100GB big, but the main issue is the big amount of small files - a Linux server has an amount of files it can handle, and each file uses a "inode".
Since a server can only have so many indoes, it means that cheaper hosts are often out since we have too many files - if a webhost promotes unlimited disk space, they often have a limit on inodes.
Anyhows, this is just an insight I wanted to share while working on the server.
The server is now down until further notice
Just a status update, still working on this. Extracting an archive with this much files takes a LONG WHILE.
Should be fixed today
So, the archive is back up again!
If you wondered why this maintenance (which took way too long), was needed: it was mainly that the old server was running on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - which is supported until April 2023, which is slowly coming closer.
It was also not running in the current stack that I prefer using (which contains Caddy), so it was high time to bring this server up to scratch with my other servers.
It's still not running 100%, but it can now be properly used again (with some layout faults, though, in same folders).
It now provides a search bar as well and should be a bit snappier than before.
Another update about maintenance, this time by the webhost. The archive will be unavailable Tuesday, 22 of November 2022, at 2:40 p.m. UTC+1.
