Exclamation Server move! 09-20-2017 02:00am EST

In case some of you missed the general announcement I posted earlier today.

Sometime over the next couple of days, I will be disabling access to this site so nothing gets lost in the transition to the new server. There would be a period, otherwise, where posts were being made here AFTER the site files had been copied over to the new server, and of course those posts would be lost once the site on the new server becomes active. So to prevent that from happening, I have to close down this site BEFORE the file copies can begin.


If you are in the process of creating a post, new thread, private email, etc. when I close down the site, they will all be lost. As soon as I have a firmer grip on exactly when this will take place, I will let you all know.

Sorry, there is no cleaner method of doing this.

I will be shutting down this site for the server move around 3am EST. The move of FaunaClassifieds will start at midnight, and I'll likely be in bed when that finishes, so I don't want to hold up moving this site. Not all that much going on here anyway, so the site being down for a few extra hours isn't going to affect much.

Thanks for taking such good care of us, Rich.

Well, I wound up shutting down this site for nothing. The server guys had some trouble with the FaunaClassifieds migration, so they recommended putting off the rest of the migrations (including this site) till another day. I think maybe they had enough dealing with Fauna.

Oh well... I opened this site back up, but we are still on the old server here.

That's okay. Is FC on the new server?

Well, almost. The files have all been copied over, but seems to be some problems with the database they are trying to resolve. I had hoped this would go quicker, but it is what it is.

It'll be really nice when all is said and done. Will everything work the same way or do I have to learn something new? (Scary thought).

No, there won't be any changes to the actual message boards. It's just that the sites will be on a different server in a different data center. Assuming they can get this to work, of course. Still having problems with FaunaClassifieds at the moment. I sure don't hope I don't have to abort this entire thing and be forced to stay on that old server for all eternity. Sooner or later all hardware breaks, and then where would I be? Well, involuntarily FULLY retired, I guess.

No way can that be allowed to happen. You've brought so many nice people together. I miss all my snaky friends.

Would someone here please try to get to FaunaClassifieds for me?

I want to make sure I don't have my IP address blocked by the new firewall. That has happened in the past.

You will likely just get a message that the site is shut down for the server move, but that would be an improvement over what I am seeing when I try to get there.
