Server move

Post by IanKennedy »

We are upgrading the server that hosts the site. This means the the forum will not work for a period. Given DNS services are distributed I can't say for sure when the system will be back online for any given user. The process will go as follows:

1) We will disable the forum on the old server.
2) We will perform a final migration to the data to the new server.
3) We will change the DNS to point a the new server.
4) We will then activate the forum on the new server.

When your local DNS updates it's cache you will be directed to the new server and be able to post again. Before that you will see the old server and unable to post or see new items add to the new server. DNS changes can take a few days to propagate around the world so hold tight.
