      Possible Downtime

      We are in the process of setting our domains up on our new servers. Subject to DNS there may be a period when all our domains are unreachable, which worse case scenario is 48 hours. However we would anticipate a much shorter downtime.

      As we need to move forward and improve the speeds of our websites, this is a small price to pay for this inconvenience. At some point this week we will suspend registrations and posting on this database to preserve the data. We will also have a holding page on the old server advising of this, so you will know if you have reached the old server or the new one.

      We hope that you understand that this inconvenience is unintentional but essential and we will endeavour to cause the least downtime as possible.

      Ged and Glenn

      Re: Possible Downtime

      We are about to change the nameservers of SkyUser which more than likely will cause some downtime

      Re: Possible Downtime

      SkyUser Radio has now successfully been transferred to Jupiter and we are pleased to announce that absolutely no data was lost (that's what happens when you don't drink Stella)

      These have now been changed and we are at the mercy of DNS now.

      SkyUser Clan has now been moved and so will suffer some downtime until DNS resolves.

      Re: Possible Downtime

      At some point today SkyUser will be transferred to Jupiter. If all goes to plan there will be less than 10 minutes downtime. If not then we will see you when we come back online.

      We are aware of a couple of issues with the rewrites on this site. Although it is now on the new server, it is not working as expected

      This has now been resolved and so that means SkyUser should work as it uses the same rewrite software. We have extended the downtime to 60 mins. Once we start the transfer of SkyUser we will close the forums, once we are confident it should work, we will switch this domain off, which should trigger the failover.
