Board downtime

Post by BOFH » Wed May 26, 2010 12:58

Hey all,

The board will be undergoing a move over the next couple of days (new webhosting-provider). At the same time the DNS will be transferred as well.

This all means, that the board will be down for some time (I've got no idea how long). When the process begins, I will put the board offline at its current location, and start moving data to the new webhosting-provider.

Once you see the board again, the transfer is done. :D

Well - the process started and ended within 15 minutes (transferring the domain etc.). It went so fast, I didn't even get a chance to start backing up the old board before everything was completed. :)

It would surprise me if some problems won't arise of the move, but let's just hope they're minor. :wink:

Just post any weird things, you come across, in this thread.

Cheers,
Mark
