announcement: antrx migrating server
« on: May 1, 2014, 09:41AM »
Just letting everyone know that antrx will be migrating to a new server within the same data centre in the next few days.

The forums are rather slow these days so I'm not going to bother trying to manage migrating servers at any particular time to minimise impact as I don't really think this is much a concern as it used to be.

This is just a notice to let you know that at some point over the next few days, the forum will go into maintenance mode, during this time you will not be able to post. This is so that no posts are lost, if any.

I will still make an effort to minimise impact, I will only put the forum in maintenance mode just before Jason starts moving the data. While Jason is moving the data, I will update the DNS entries to reflect the new server location. We will set the forums on the new server to be in regular usage mode, i.e. not maintenance. By the time the DNS entries propagate, the move should have been completed, making the forums automatically leave maintenance mode as you will be viewing them on the new server.

That's about all I can think of. If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them here.

Thanks for letting us know Noss. It's cool you guys still run the website considering the small number of enthusiast around these days. Just let us know if / when ANTRX shuts up shop. I've found it a valuable resource for some of the stuff I have done.

Just so you know, worst case scenario I will move antrx to my other hosting server which costs me far less to maintain and has far more storage available. The other server isn't quite as fast as this one, but for the sake of keeping the information available I don't mind keeping it running indefinitely as the only additional cost I would then have to maintain for antrx is the domain renewal which is small change.

You should transfer a copy to your other host and run it from there. Cheapest solution possible for you, unless others are going to donate.

It's just finding the time to do it I guess. Last time I had a look at it I had some issues with the database not exporting correctly so I left it there.

Hopefully plan to sit down and look at it over the next 1-2 months.

sounds like a plan...
the words "race car" spelled backward still spell "race car"?
