Site Migration
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:37:56 pm »
I'd like to apologise about such short notice about this, but due to fast approaching deadlines I will be performing a site migration at 7AM EST TODAY (27th April).

The bulk of the migration is already complete, but to fully migrate the site I will need to lock access to the forums to prevent any potential posts etc being lost.

Once the database snapshots are in place, the actual switchover will commence.  Normally this is completed within 2 hours, however, due to how DNS propagates, it could take 48 hours (I've never personally seen it take longer than a few hours), some may have access within minutes of the changes being made.

I will try as best I can to make the transition as smooth as possible.

During the transition the main site will remain available in a read only state.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

For the most part this should now be completed.


There is still one remaining issue that I need to fix, but I'm still looking for the file that is referencing the script that needs updating, this shouldn't impact the useability of the site though.


If you are experiencing any issues from the migration, please post here or let me know.
