Forum maintenance Thursday 18/10/2017 -Completed

Post by xantia_v6 »

Following our recent technical issues, the forum is moving to a new VPS server. The software has been installed and (subject to a little more testing) is ready to go.

To move the site it needs to be taken off-line for a period of 1 - 2 hours, to allow a backup and restore cycle and to allow the updated DNS record to propagate.

I intend to do this some time tomorrow, either in the early morning, or a little later in the day if any issues are discovered between now and then.

The Forum does appear to be running much better now.

Perhaps it might be a good time to remind people that this forum is funded by sticker sales and donations, and the move to a new server might be a good excuse to exercise the buttons in the forum header. :wink:

Good idea :)

For the record, sticker orders come through to me and I always try to despatch them return of post... They are really lovely things and worth having...

Which reminds me... I must make a new donation as I need a set of stickers for my new Saxo ;)
