I'm getting the FC header and the rectangle telling me the site is down and to try back later.

Thanks for trying for me.

I was finally able to get back in after resetting my cable modem, router, and computers, and then flushing the DNS entries from the PCs. Seemed like mostly everyone else was able to get to the site, and after doing a test ping, apparently for some reason my network was thinking the site was still at the old server. Which should have at least given me the same message that the site was down, but I wasn't even getting that.

So whatever... It seems to be working now, and I have the site opened back up.

I'll have to replenish my supply of Excedrin before tackling this site. Maybe in a few days when my headache goes away.

Sounds like a good plan to me.

Ah well, the server guys just told me they plan on moving all my smaller sites over to the new server this evening, but give me some time to make certain FaunaClassifieds is running OK before moving this site.

It's entirely possible that this site might have problems because of the FaunaAds site getting hosed up during the move, so please bear that in mind. It will eventually straighten itself out, however, as the DNS info gets percolated all across internet-land.

I just checked my stock and I still have at least a half dozen Excedrins in the bottle here in my den. They say that if you chew them up they act faster and better, but I guess I'm just not man enough to take that step. Sometimes I will get one that is slow finding the way down the "tube", and that is bad enough as it starts to dissolve.

OK, back on the table. This is now scheduled to take place around 1:00am EST on Sunday, 09-03-2017. A few minutes prior to that, I will be shutting down the site in preparation for the files to be moved to the new server.

Not sure how long this will take, so just check back when you can to see whether we are back or not.

Well, I'm not sure if this is going to take place or not. I am having some problems posting replies on FaunaClassifieds on the new server. Just doesn't seem right that a posted reply will take 28 seconds to complete, does it?

So I need to get that fixed first before even thinking of moving this site over to that server. Going to be a real bite on the butt if they CAN'T fix that issue and I have to roll back to the old server. Again...

Send Connie to the drug store. Today. My fingers are crossed on the move!

I postponed this move for at least a week. Having some problems with intermittent slowness during message postings on my forums that are already on the new server. So I would like to get that resolved first before moving this site over there.

Thanks, Rich! I appreciate your work on the forums.

(Sorry I missed this, earlier. Have been a little under the weather the past week or so.)

Well, things seem to be looking up on the server guys resolving the issue with posts hanging up for sometimes up to 20 seconds. But I'm still going to wait a couple of days before thinking about migrating this site to the new server. I've already recently paid for the old servers for the next month, so I guess it's no rush now. Hopefully I won't have to be paying for three servers for too long.
