    Expect even more forum outages

    I have access to a PC for a bit..

    So will try to get this forum moved over to a server in Singapore.. I am unsure how fast the name server resolution will happen.. And that may knock some people offline..

    I will also try to point the site to a url of the database so that it requires only a brief shutdown at changeover as I move it, and doesnt lose posts. Thats my hope, judging on how poor everything else is with the original host I dont know it will work to plan like that.

    So there may be name server issues.. May be mysql connection issues.. Etc etc.. I wouldnt normally tinker with it live and use a test version but I dont have much PC time and its down so much on this host anyway its better to just get it done.

    OK.. I am planning a shift of servers tomorrow afternoon, Asia time. Now I am blagging the bars music computer to try this. Not ideal as customers are in the bar.

    Looks simple.. import the old Db onto the new host.. But famous last words..

    If it works as I think I will shut the forum down for posting to not lose posts once I know it works on a test.. Then when the DNS catches up for the URL, it should work and be stable from then.

    Shit like this annoys me.. Kicks the OCD into overdrive.

    If this had been in any way planned.. It would all have been so much easier..

    Welcome back..

    If your seeing this.. DNS has now propagated, and its running on a new server in Singapore. That should be faster for the asian / Oz guys but maybe not for Euro / US.

    Please report any errors you see.

    It's working great here (though being in Singapore I get a sweet 15ms latency to it )

    Thanks for sorting the issues out, it was really frustrating before lol.
