      Server Move And Downtime 18th February 2010

      We have received notice that our main server is to be moved to a new improved data centre on Thursday 18th of February between 10:30pm and 1am.

      Therefore we expect to be offline for up to 3 hours, although our hosting company are confident, it should be about 30 minutes maximum.

      The impact should only affect any of the domains that we host and not the SkyUser SMTP service as this is on a totally different server.

      We apologise in advance for this planned downtime.

      Hi Ged what did that mean when I PM you earlier I was not sure if it had anything to do with my slow connection.

      Hi Steve

      It's an error that happens through using the software that we do for the ad serving. I think it's an error with the actual coding of the software though and not an actual server problem. The server usually recycles every 10 minutes or so and should rectify this once done so.

      Sorry for not replying to the PM but I literally get loads everyday and don't always reply to them.

      Hi Ged no problem. I think that is what came up about error coding. Hope it all goes well on the 18th.

      main server is to be moved to a new improved data centre
      Good to see it growing well

      Just a quick bump to bring this back up, as the server location move is taking place in about 24 hours or so.

      Less than an hour and a half to go before we go offline.
