[Completed] Server move tonight (11/01/2019)

Postby Ellimist » Thu Jan 10, 2019 2:53 pm

Update: This has been completed successfully.

I'm in the process of decommissioning my Italian server (where this is hosted) and moving to a London based server. As a part of that, I will be moving this site there as well. I'm planning to start the move for this site at midnight GMT and it should be completed by 2 AM at the most. I don't anticipate issues although Murphy's Law tends to strike at the most inopportune moments.

I had also been planning to upgrade this site to the latest version of phpBB around the move, so that there's only one downtime you guys will have to bear. But with any change, there comes a share of outrage and a flurry of fixing things, which I'm just not ready for right now. So I'll just move the site, as is, to the new server and we can see about upgrading later (hopefully soon).

Zenith has been helping me out with the theme and he has some nice suggestions for the banner and the colours and everything, so I won't be alone when you guys will want to put the blame on someone. :biggrin:

The move has been completed. As far as I can see everything's working properly. Let me know if anything feels broken.

Don't worry. The classic Prosilver theme will remain unchanged.

Minor tweaks and changes will be made to the Metro Red theme in the near future.

No drastic makeovers, though. The forum will not lose many of its main characteristics.
