Forum Outage 11 December 2015...

Postby CitroJim » 11 Dec 2015, 14:38

The latest Forum outage from late last night until today was caused once again by a failed Internet Connection to the old host servers.

Following the last outage of this nature a few days ago some contingency plans were made to guard against this eventuality. We did not expect that eventuality to happen quite so soon but it did.

A decision was made early this morning to migrate the forum to a newly acquired commercially hosted server in a proper datacentre. This was planned to be done in slow time but due to the latest failure it was done in a hurry.

Many and grateful thanks to Mike (Xantia_V6) who did a sterling job of doing a very rapid migration all the way from his home in NZ :-D A very sterling effort, Mike worked late into the night =D>

Please note that although the forum is back on-line it is not yet complete with all it's little accessories such as Tapatalk and other enhancements. They will be added in due course but for now at least the forum is back with us.

The Wiki is still down, as is the BX Club Forum. Both will be back as soon as possible but please bear with us.

Please report any observed issues or problems to Mike and I.

We now hope the new hosting will be reliable. I was wanting to test it for a few more days but needs must and here it is being tested for real!

Once again, apologies for any inconvenience the forum outages have caused...

Thanks and have a great weekend one and all..

It was all Mike's work, I was at work and had no involvement at all ;)

All I did was to procure the server!

It would appear that everyone is happy!

I will however be taking the forum off-line for a while in the early hours tomorrow morning (UK time) to do some reconfigurations/upgrades to the database.
