I've been playing around with SSL support.https://www.animecharactersdatabase.com/
will allow you to use ACDB via SSL.
Making a self-signed cert can be scary, but here is how I did it :
/home/rei/ssl/bin/openssl req -newkey rsa:4096 -sha512 -x509 \
-keyout server.pem -out server.pem -days 365 -nodes
Generating a 4096 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to 'server.pem'
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:.
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:.
Locality Name (eg, city) :.
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Anime Characters Database
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) :.
Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) :*.animecharactersdatabase.com
Email Address :email@example.com
rei@animecharactersdatabase:~ % cp server.pem /var/www/etc/
It's kinda fun to see how it's rated
Strong security with no trust. xD
Personally, I consider paying money for a "signed" SSL certificate akin to being a victim of an extortion racket.
Series pages now have a VA tab which lists all voice actors assigned to that series.
ACDB is running on new hardware and new software as of September 25th, 2014, 7:30PM
We have new IP's.
IP version 4 : 184.108.40.206
IP version 6 : 2607:2200:0:2356::acdb
We've upgraded from FreeBSD 8.0
to FreeBSD 10.0
We have a new CPU !CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E31270 @ 3.40GHz (3392.40-MHz K8-class CPU)
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ 2.93GHz (2926.01-MHz K8-class CPU)
We have more RAM. Previous 8 GB
, now 16 GB
We have more HD! Previous 80 GB
, now 500 GB
Our hosting costs have gone up a bit. Previous $89 US/month
, now $109 US/month
lighttpd, and mysql have also been upgraded.
We've been renting the same VPS server since 07/18/2010. Now we have our on dedicated hardware.
The VPS has been insanely stable. Only once was it rebooted, as per the hosting company doing upgrades.
That was nearly 700 days ago. Not one crash ever! I do hope this new server is every bit as stable and problem free.
Cost of running ACDB since 07/18/2010
I've switched us over to a new temporary data server solution. There shouldn't be any major problems beyond being logged out of the site. Or being unable to log in for a brief moment.
I'll be running this test for a couple of days, and should all go well, I'll make the transition to the new server next week!
a new feature for character pages
The Note to Self
. Different from a comment, it is visible only to you at the top of a character page. Later this will be made visible to all members on a separate link. The idea is to be more informal ... you can write whatever you think of a character without being open to criticism/agreement or disagreement.
It is likely we will be upgrading our server this month. Much of the setup is complete. Just a little more testing to go.
- New Server -
We have purchased a new server, however moving ACDB to the new server is still an ongoing project. Likely by September our IP will change to reflect the new server.
Main benefits of the new server include :
1. dedicated system ( on a VPS currently )
2. 1.2TB of storage ( 80GB HD currently )
3. IPv6 accessible ( no IPv6 currently )
4. FreeBSD 10 ( still running FreeBSD 8.0 )- Site Changes -
I reworked Character Profiles today to use a modular system. Rather than loading everything at once on a very long page - each section loads individually.
The Front Page now includes a list of 14 major features
ACDB has to offer. I plan to allocate a significant amount of time to updating these features this year.
If you see Rias ( red hair ), you have IPv6, if you see Akeno ( black hair ), you have IPv4, if you see neither, um, that's gonna suck when I update our DNS.
We're now running lighttpd 1.4.35
Though Netcraft confirms it
as Anime Characters Database Web Server 186
I did a full backup of the database while the server was offline. Seems we have near 700MB of database data. 5 years ago we had less than 30MB.

WHAT a cute baby!
In all honesty the problem with Seirei is that even in the light novel the first part of the story is simply boring. It feels like a school romance/comedy with an annoying redhead tsundere and a bunch of other nicer heroines.
It is indeed a problem because that is all that the first arc offers, it's the introduction arc of the characters and them getting to know each other.
All the arcs after the first one, and yes I mean all of em! Are insanely good with intense action, deep plot and good villains. However since the anime only wanted a 12 episode show we never even got to the main story and are stuck in the school comedy that is not even that funny.
So yeah, I'd still recommend season 1 just for an entertaining yet not super interesting watch with cute girls in it. However if you really want to taste the awesomeness you will have to either read the light novel or hope for a season 2 since all hell breaks loose quite shortly after where the anime ended.
