Forums on the Wonko server

Are currently the target of choice to get moved to the new server.

I'm tentatively thinking of doing this around 6am BST (GMT+1).

The forums on the Wonko  will be offline for a good couple hours whilst this is done.

Cheers admin, i will let all the early birds on the forum know that we will be down for a few hours, after the move i take it we need to change our ip adresses on dns?
myff admin

No you don't

That is the beauty  of the new system, the forums are moved wholesale to a cloned but more powerful system. So the IPs are the same.

mine is coming up with 109.169.13.196 which server would that be
myff admin

Hotblack.

Actually I have not put an announcement line on forums about this, which is a bit off really, and basically things are working forum wise so it actually seems stupid to do this in the early hours. I will probably do it at a sane time Sunday instead.

I think I'm suffering from conflicted motivations here, the pressure of non forums work over the last couple of weeks has been quite insane, and I'm feeling I'm neglecting the forums, but the real way to deal with that is not to give myself yet another sleepless night, but to concentrate on clearing down the workload without coming up with ways of increasing the stress levels.

Will the new server change anything with the performance of the forum i.e. load faster or slower.
myff admin

A little faster, but speed currently should be okay anyway.

Cool, thanks admin Wish you a smooth transition.

Do we have a time for Sunday please?
myff admin

Probably 9am UK time.

Thank you

Halfway there, Wonko has been exported and is now being imported to its destination.
The export took 1 hour, import should be quicker.

Following the import a few interfaces need to be cloned from the original, and then Wonko will be restarted with more memory, more cpu and an improved mysql configuration.

Is this done? extratimeforum.net I try going on that forum and it doesn't load.
myff admin

Wonko is now up and running again.
