      Re: We're On The Move!

      Just another update:

      We have now got the new version of forum software running on a test domain
      We now have the new skin for the new software
      We have made some changes to the database running on this server, which is hopefuly helping speedwise
      We are currently doing a dummy run of a backup from the old software (on this server) to the new one
      We will then have a dummy run at upgrading the software etc

      We have also started transferring domains;

      o2User.co.uk is now running on the new server
      SkyUserClan.co.uk is now running on the new server
      SkyUserRadio.co.uk is now running on the new server
      Tiscaliuser.net is now running on the new server

      (I will add to the list of the domains as they are transferred)

      Re: We're On The Move!

      Provisional move date.

      We are anticipating that our changeover date to the new server, will be Saturday 11th February 2011

      At some point on 11th February, we will stop any further forum registrations and also any further postings whatsoever by any member.

      This is to ensure that we can backup and then restore the data from the old version of SkyUser to the new one without losing any data whatsoever.

      We estimate that the website will be unfunctional for about 4 hours at the most.

      Once we make live the new version of SkyUser, there will be frequent changes to the website, and we will be constantly changing, as we reintroduce certain plugins, until things are workable at least.

      We also realise that certain parts of the website will be non-functional, but these will be brought back online asap as and when we can resolve them.

      We already know and fully accept that a lot of people will not like the new version, as it is 'change' but if we do not embrace 'change' then we cannot progress.

      We will take onboard any feedback and endeavour to act on it, but please bear with us whilst we make this transgression to the 'new up-to-date with the times' SkyUser.

      We sincerely hope that you like the new look SkyUser, as we have worked very hard the last couple of weeks, to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible.



      Please note: If at any point things go wrong, we will roll back to the previous version, and then reassess the situation.

      Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the migration to the new server for today.

      We will reschedule for sometime in the next few days.

      Re: We're On The Move!

      We will be starting the migration as from 9:30pm this evening.

      Any posts that are made on the old website, after 9:35pm will be lost as we will have already backed up the database and will be in the process of restoring onto the new server.

      We will keep you updated in this thread.

      Hopefully locking down the forum will help.

      The "practise runs" will have been useful.

      Looking good on Netscape. I needed to close IE9 before it recognised the new forum software.

      Well done Ged.
