Server Upheaval

Postby Benabik » Mon Oct 27, 2014 7:46 pm

I'm in the process of updating the server. In theory there should be no interruptions in service.

Q: What's the difference between theory and practice?
A: In theory, there is no difference.

Greetings users!

A new server has been prepared and is currently accessible at http://new.silverinsanity.com/.

Note that the forums there are not currently active. I only want one forum to be available at a time. This weekend I will do the grand move. The process will look something like this:

  • Disable the current forum.
  • Copy posts to the new forum.
  • Enable the new forum.
  • Change silverinsanity.com to the new server
This should be a mostly seamless process, with one exception: for a while some people will see silverinsanity.com as the old server and some will see the new. This is one reason why only one forum will be active at a time, so no posts can be lost. If you do end up seeing the old site after the move has started there will either be a link to the new site or it will redirect you automatically.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here.

Welcome to the new forums! If you're still seeing the old server at silverinsanity.com, then you should be automatically redirected here to the new forums. You may notice a few differences to the forums, as I've updated to the latest phpBB.
