Blood and Fire Moving Servers!

Postby steve » Sat Jan 22, 2005 3:36 pm

Hi Folks,

Blood and Fire is moving servers!

Hopefully sometime today, which means for a short while the web site will not be available.

Im hoping to keep this disruption to the service to a minimum but Im reckoning that you would much rather do without for a short while than run the risk of losing messages on the board or losing orders on the shopping cart.

There will be a new url for a short time but please DO NOT update your bookmarks, you will be redirected automatically and this will be a temporary solution; as soon as the name servers catch up everything will continue working as normal.

As I know more I will let you know, but it will be quite short notice.

Wish me luck
Steve

Thanks for letting us know.

By the way, I could hardly notice your announcement because I got used to ignore the 'sticky' posts up there! Hopefully others will see it.

P.S. oh, and good luck!

Ok,

this is it,, I will close the Blood and Fire site down at 20:00 and hopefully all will go according to plan and it will be back up soon enough.

Your patience and restraint from trying to access the board or anything else during this time will be appreciated :-)

Cheers

Hi Folks,

Would seem that we are all back up and running on the new server!

There should be no more problems now we have a much higher bandwidth allowance and server space.

In the end I had to manually move the database across, some 300,000+ entries, which is why it took longer than anticipated.

I aint gonna moan but lets just say I am very very happy to have finally moved to the new server...

As I said you may notice that you are browsing on a new url for a day or so (and this will rectify itself as soon as the dns entries catch up) but the change over should have been seamless!

You shouldnt have noticed anything other than the discussion board being locked for a couple of hours ;-)

Now I think I can get back into developing some good stuff for you guys!

Thanks for your patience!
Cheers
Steve

Well Done Steve, that was pretty painless really :-)
Oh i can just see you there moving those files... and probably having your FTP bombing out and having to work out which file it stopped at... and I thought uploading 500 plus files to my site this weekend was hard work !

,,,

It is very appreciated , never doubt it..

That was really quick - didn't notice that the site went down & all after I left the board this evening and before I came back just later tonight...

I just had to re-log in in order to check the board again, which was not big trouble.

Cheers for your work Steve - it seems all that swearing didn't go in vain! :mrgreen:
