Exclamation Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

The server migration will take place tomorrow morning on Monday 17th July at approximately 8AM. The transfer doesn't take a long time. The main wait will be for DNS servers to be updated with the server's new IP address.

You can keep up to date with the migration progress here, on Twitter:

https://twitter.com/write_tech

Please note that this is only the server move, not the OS update I have previously announced. By moving the server and increasing the disk storage space we will prevent some of the recent instability we've been experiencing.

However, as soon as the server move is stable, I will start work on updating our applications.

Ian

Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

I'll be thinking of you as I cook dinner Monday night here. Hope all goes well & I'll check after dinner to see how things have got on, but realise the DNS server might not update till the next day though.

Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

Seems to have worked fine Ian - based on a message saying the upgrade was in progress half an hour or so ago!

Good news! I've cooked our dinner & just sat down to have a look. I'm glad to see all went well then (hopefully?).

On the previous version, the search for new posts gave a listing with the thread title in bold which changed to normal after reading. The new version doesn't seem to do that...

(Apple MacBook Pro running Safari)

Don't know if this is a parameter that needs setting - or a change...

That might be something to do with cookies. Can you try logging out, closing your browser and re-logging in?

Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

John, again most likely to be a cookie issue. I'd advise re-booting your browser and maybe logging out and logging back in beforehand.

I need a bit of help Can you describe what happened before and what is different now? I realise you already did this but I can't quite visualise it from your original description. This could be because I need another coffee... but if you could bear with me!
