Post subject:  Moving to new server - important!

Hostgator says the RAM in the old server was getting unreliable, and instead of just switching RAM, they recommended moving up to a newer server. Makes sense, as the old one has been running for five years, and just think of the changes that have been made in computers and phones over the last five years!

I have placed an order for a new Dedicated server, up from Basic plan with 3GB RAM and a 10mbit network port to a Standard server with 4GB RAM and 100mbit network port. The price goes up from $174 to $219 a month. More here: http://www.hostgator.com/dedicated

IMPORTANT: Copying of files from the old to the new server is now in progress. All changes made on the old server from now on are not sure to appear on the new server when we switch to it. So, posts made in the discussion forums from now on until the switch has been made may not be there when we open the forums on the new server.

So, if you have some golden words and want them preserved for posterity, either hold your horses or make a copy that you can post later if neccessary.

New info on the move will be posted here.

You will have noticed some down time already. It's up again now, and I hope to get all settled later today.
Ideally, everything will be as before, only better.

Seems like you are paying an awful lot... I have a VPS thru StartLogic for only about $400/ year. Unlimited storage. :wink:

The old server was down again from around 1500 CEST to 2120 CEST. They say it has serious errors and won't live much longer. Good thing the new one is on its way.

I've recently set up a forum for customers disatisfied with my loft insulation business, so unfortunately I do.
However, Trev would like to thank you for your sterling work, Karl Erik, and assure you that I go through your Amazon link when I buy from there. Your efforts are much appreciated. I don't know if you have lofts in Norway, but if you do I will happily insulate yours for free! (You will be liable for expenses - first class return flights from Heathrow, etc.) You do a great job and should be very proud to have provided us with such an excellent service.

Don't speak too soon For the wheel's still in spin...
Expecting Rain's move to a new server is almost done. You are reading this on the NEW server,
and your wheel has stopped spinning. If you can read this, you are ready to post to the forums in the new place.

Welcome to a stronger, fresher server!
