DollFan probably to be down tonight

Post by Steve »

Hey all,
It's not set in stone yet but probably around 10pm Mountain DF is going to be down for a couple of hours. It should be a pretty smooth process but the site is being moved to a different server and while it's being moved posts could end up being made on this server and not on the other....for those who use the gallery for eBay pictures or whatnot that will function fine throughout the process.

thanks,
Steve

The site has moved and it looks ok......have been running some pretty intensive server/site tests off and on which will make the site unresponsive for short periods of time but will hopefully be done with it all within the next bit. Just better to try and get it over with at low traffic times.

Yep, PM's ain't working right. I think during the move the forum got cold in this sudden freeze we have here, so the PM maker is stuck. :lol:

yeah, still sorting it out but most of the major stuff should be going ok now...feel free to let me know if you continue to have issues including PM's; that was actually a minor thing as far as what was going on but taking it's time sorting out.

Yes Steve I had it down both Sat. and Sun morings here on West coast. So would be afternoon on East coast.

Is it the new server? why around the same time both days? Very confusing to us. I know it's the weekend but I am sure more are on then as well.

Hope the kinks get worked out.

Hugs,

thanks, Joy...
The why is just because ;) actually, the hardware for the server was just starting to show it's age and felt it was time to put the site on a newer one which could handle the site a bit more efficiently. We'll see how long this one lasts and update it when needed later on probably, too.
