Today I upgraded my production site ravisagar.in to the latest recommended Drupal 9.3.0, the site was running on 8.8.2 which was not too far behind but I wanted to not only upgrade my site to 9 but also want to add more features. The current sparxsys.com website is on version 8.6.3 which is a bit old but instead of upgrading it to Drupal 9 I have now other plans.
Well this site has all the videos, blog posts and twitter syndications. It is an integral part of what I do personally and also at Sparxsys so I have decided to move sparxsys.com website to the same codebase. However instead of running both the sites on multisite configuration I will have the same database and shared content. This can be achieved using domain access module in Drupal which is something I did for a client in the…

Running a company is not easy, a lot goes into making a company successful. For me it is not new. I was running a company in India and now I just have to repeat those things here in UK. There are so many thing that I need to do, I can think of the following immediate tasks.
Updating company website, it needs a bit of revamp and Drupal upgrade. I need to mention all the services that we want to offer.
Make sure I spent regular time in app development. I already have 2 server apps but those needs an update and we need to work on their cloud equivalent.
Create regular video courses on YouTube.
Ensure all the company documentation, templates etc. are up to date with UK operations.
Need to find an accountancy service here in UK.
Need to promote Sparxsys services in India.

There was a question on the community about bad Jira performance due to lot of attachments.
Well there are few things you can do.
Symlink attachments directory to somewhere else like a dedicated file storage.
Set a limit on the attachment size, I am sure you have it already, just review it.
Do regular audit of your Jira instance to find out issues with big attachment sizes. I have seen instances where users have uploaded videos and big log files.
Setup and archive strategy. Not sure if you are on DC already but move very old issues to another read only instance or may be delete them after storing backups.
There might be another issue causing memory or performance issues - like lot of configurations, too many custom fields and may scripts. Check this page for performance tuning.
