They've moved the British Championship and grading sites to separate addresses. Whether these resource problems are to do with the new forum isn't established. They coincide with its introduction, but it's not particularly busy (yet).

Advice has been given to ringfence the MySQL instances being used by the various instances of WordPress and, in particular, the grading application.

The risk to be mitigated was potential flaky or buggy code from one site comprimising resources or another when sites are sitting on the same shared cPanel or server instance.

The lack of development and staging servers (advice has been given to implement these) leads to live sites having new code being released without adequate testing including stress testing and penetration testing ("Pen Testing").

Was the new forum worth the effort for 327 posts?
