New server and associated board outage

New server and associated board outage

Postby PorkScratching on Thu 19 Jul 2012, 7:21 am

Thanks to all your kind donations, we have been able to buy a new server from a reputable host. I've already moved many of the sites hosted on the old server to it and all is going well. Therefore I plan on moving the UKAR board this weekend. Because of the fragile nature of the old server, quantity of data involved etc, this may take some time! So expect there to be significant periods of board downtime this weekend (21/22 July). Apologies for this, but the end result should be worth it.

Very impressed! Goes to show that the the little amounts we were able to donate, soon start to add up! This is great news - good luck with the move!

Good luck, and thanks for all the hard work.

No Craig. Smilies aren't linked to the new server. DanB makes them himself.

What new smilies do we need anyway?

The new server certainly is quick! I've never seen UKAR pages load so fast

I know it's a little late but I've sent a small contribution to the funds.

Apologies for the short downtime a little earlier - I was doing some maintenance and tidying which took a little longer than planned.

The domain name airshows.co.uk is in the process of being transferred so the main site will be unobtainable for a period followed by the board while the DNS servers update.
