  • Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

    The server migration will take place tomorrow morning on Monday 17th July at approximately 8AM (UK time). The transfer doesn't take a long time. The main wait will be for DNS servers to be updated with the server's new IP address.

    You can keep up to date with the migration progress here, on Twitter:

    Please note that this is only the server move, not the OS update I have previously announced. By moving the server and increasing the disk storage space we will prevent some of the recent instability we've been experiencing.

    However, as soon as the server move is stable, I will start work on updating our applications.

    The server move has now completed. There is a small chance that some bugs will have resulted - if you discover anything that doesn't work as expected, please let me know here.

    Many thanks!

      The good news is that the server move has been completed.

      There are some small issues that need fixing. You may find that when you log into the forum that you appear to be logged out again almost immediately - do persevere and you should find you are still logged in after all. Sometimes index pages will need to be refreshed in the browser to show the actual most recent posts, even if you have just opened that page.

      We think we know how to fix these teething problems and I will update this thread once we have applied the fix successfully.

      Sorry for any inconvenience!

        Hopefully you are able to get these fixes done OK & you don't spend a sleepless night with these troubles on your mind (that is usually how I find myself with unsolved issues ).

          Thanks Ross - I thought I was going to bed with the assurance that the problems would be address overnight but this morning it looks like nothing was done. Our hosting company is normally excellent at fixing problems so I am very surprised and disappointed.
