Server move(haven't done this in awhile)

Post by Steve » Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:02 am

Hey all,
Like the subject says it's time to move DF to another server. This one has been pretty steady and still going strong but sometimes it's easier to just move to something new than update an existing one which would have had to be done in the next few months. Anyway, I had to do some pre-function stuff and while technically the site was still up most probably couldn't reach it for a few hours here over the last bit. What is going to happen when it moves is that the forum will be shut off for a couple of hours tomorrow(posts tend to get lost if done during the middle of a move) where there is a ton of data to move during that time. When it comes back up there will be two versions of the board going on(one on this server and one on the new one) and depending on how your isp handles recognizing the move you could possibly still be going to the old one for an hour or two. No big deal and your isp will figure it out automatically for you. I'll give as much of a heads up as I can before the transfer and thanks for your patience.
