Title: ApplianceJunk.com server upgrade March 24th.
Post by: AJ on March 21, 2012, 04:10:15 PM
Just a little heads up.

Our hosting account is scheduled to be upgraded on 24-March-2012 between 8:00 PM and Midnight (US Central time).

At that time our site will get moved to a new server. One that is running Cloud Linux.

They tell me...

With Cloud Linux we are able to ensure a consistent server uptime and increased security.

All I really know is that our site has been running on the same server for about four years now and over the years we have had very little downtime, but when we have had downtime it's been frustrating. :)

I'm looking forward to the move and keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes ok this weekend.

We will be doing some maintenance on our site between now (11:09PM Central time) and the next 8 hours.


During this time our forum and the rest of our site will not be available, but things should be back up and running sometime Friday morning.


Thanks,

Ok, so if you are reading this post you know we are back online, on a new server, again. :)


This last week has been one big mess behind the scenes at ApplianceJunk.com


The host we had been with for the last four years up and sold his company.
The new hosting company moved our site to there servers last Saturday and things just started going down hill from there, so I fired him.  8)


We are now working with a server administrator that also runs the servers our forum software comes from, SMF (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php)


After talking with him I have no doubt that he will have no problem handling our server needs today and as we grow.


If you notice any problems with the site please let me know, thanks  O0
