All,

Our server is being migrated to a super dooper faster model after midnight on Fri.

This is a good thing and no extra cost - all their UK servers are being migrated. There is no choice.

Because the new server will have different IP addresses, settings need to be updated afterwards to point to it rather than the old one. There may be a period early Sat morning when you will not have access.

To prevent data loss during migration, I will place the site in Maintenance mode around midnight so that no new posts or comments made during migration get lost.

Hiya Sue - there's always one! It should be working fine on yer equipment by Sat midday at the latest, probably earlier. You don't have to change anything at your end.

Still in Ipswich doing intensive job hunting. Will probably have to relocate once I find something.

Ha bloomin ha shoo_fly

No idea if the migration took place or not. No update from the server hosts and everything is still working as it should with no new settings required at my end.

Just as well as I was out last night and completely forgot about it anyway doh 

Hugs to you all big_hug

So . .  it failed that first time and they tried again at 8 pm on Fri night, June 14.

Not exactly a roaring success. the site was down until 08:30 sun morning.

But hey ho, we are back in business.

 

As always, if the site is down, you can report it on my Facebook page and also get status updates there as fixes are progressed.

Strange isn't it, Aly? I think we all wonder why, but continue to come back again and again!

It must be the like-minded folk who are here.  big_hug
