Derby Talk is moving

Post by gpraceman » Tue Feb 11, 2014 12:44 pm

Our old server is at its end of life, so we have to move everything to a new sever. That process has already started. At some point here, I will have to take the site down to make the final switchover, so this is a heads up.

Hopefully, being on the new server will improve the performance of the site. I also hope that we will have less issues with DDoS attacks, which we have experienced recently that get the sites on our server down to a crawl.

The final part of the migration will, hopefully, be completed tonight. The site will indicate that it is down for maintenance during this migration. Once the site is restored, it will be up on the new server.

Well, it appears that the migration is complete.

If you find anything that is not working, please send me a PM.

Ugh! That was a painful move. Sorry for all of the downtime. I believe that the dust has now settled.

I did also upgrade this forum to the latest version. So, if you find anything that isn't working right, please let me know.

Randy, it's a thankless job. I appreciate your efforts in maintaining this site for the Scouts, and for their over zealous, competitive parents! :mrgreen:

Thank you!!!
