    Server Change Soon

    Will be doing a server change/migrate very soon for Modders-Inc and our sister site Jonnyguru.com.

    We will be moving the files to an updated server and all the files will be moved by the server host. This will give us time to make sure that all the files have been moved to the new server. The worst thing that will happen is that we many lose a few days of post. So if you have anything that REALLY important to say please wait until after we get the server switched over. The site will then be down for only the length of time it takes for the Domain IP address to switch over.

    We will try to give everyone the time and day plus all the info as soon as we know about it. So go ahead and enjoy the site as normal

    If there is a problem we will just hold off on transfering the site until they fix the problem. This should keep any downtime to a minimum. We will loose a few posts from the time the backup takes place till the new setup is live.

    Server Change Soon

    I have bad experience with migrating from one to another server (altho it was at my dad's company) but wow we had 2 days of work to do before everything started up again (programs, settings, client installs and stuff)

    but shouldn't be that much problems with a web server

    Good luck guys

    Ok, they did the main part of the migration last night. I hope to be able to confirm that everything is good to go today.

    Any posts made from last night till the change potentially could be lost. I am going to try to minimize this but there are no guarantees.

    The main change we are having to do is upgrading the server software. A few changes required the server to be formatted and then reloaded. Rather than Dump everything do the updates and then reload everything, the migration process is being done. So we can verify and test the server before actually going live with it. This will limit our downtime as much as possible.
