Hosting Switch - Forum Downtime - BACK UP ON THE NEW HOST

Postby Paul » Sat 03 Mar 2012 9:07 am

Sometime in the next few days, I'm updating the forum and moving the hosting. There will probably be some time where the forum is down and not working. I really don't know exactly when this will happen or for how long. We will post an announcement and set the forum to read-only before this happens. Just giving you guys a headsup now.

EDIT: We're back up on the new host. -- Jeff

LOL. I'm hoping it isn't down for long and nobody notices. Should be pretty quick and easy. There might be a few posts lost in the time it takes to download and transfer the files, but I hope it isn't a big deal.

Looks like this could be a few days to get taken care of. Going to take Jeff's expertise to finish this project.

I have to take the forum offline for a little while. Please be patient. I'll get it back online as soon as I can.

I have finished migrating the forum over to the new host and am posting this reply in the new hosts 'preview' mode, just to make sure that it works. We'll be switching over the DNS entries to point to the new server very soon.

Seems to be a tad slow from my computer--there's a momentary lag after I click a button.

Everything that I recall looking at this morning seems to have migrated OK.

Re: Hosting Switch - Forum Downtime - NOW ON THE NEW HOST

Postby Jeff Johnson » Sun 04 Mar 2012 5:54 pm

We've now changed the DNS entry for our domain name to point to the new host.

It still may take a little time for this change to propagate through all the name servers, but it seems to have happened rather quickly for what I can see.

Let us know if you see any problems.

I'm here now too. Looks good on my end.

If some other members of the forum would take a quick look and let us know if they see any bugs and how things look that would be awesome. Post here what you find.
