planned server migration

Post by theOptom » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:54 am

The host has advised that the current server needs significant maintenance so it is best to migrate to another server.

So the site will be down from 11pm Tuesday 16th Jan 2018. Probably for 24 hours, but could be upto 48hrs.

And we're back. Looking at the new server specs it seems this one is more powerful, so should be faster. Let me know if anyone notices any problems, thanks.

Was going to post that I keep getting SQL errors - was concerned that the database wasn't linking properly or the database server kept going down. Is this the problem that has been rectified?

No issues today...
