**Potential Outage**
« on: February 24, 2010, 11:13:06 AM »

I picked a really good time to transfer hosts.  My new one is in the process of moving all their servers to a new location.  I just checked their schedule and it looks like the one I'm on will potentially get moved tonight, sometime after 11pm PST.  There is a chance that we will go down for a brief time during this move.  Their estimate is roughly 45 minutes.

If there are any issues that take us beyond that time, I will post about it on our FB page.  I am really sorry, guys!  I had no idea that this was going on when I initiated the transfer.

It's okay, Fox! Things like this happen and it's not like you knew they were moving their servers. A short outage will be fine, as long as something catastrophic doesn't happen to make us lose the forums, it's cool. If something like that does happen it wouldn't be your fault anyway. Thanks for giving us a heads up, though.  ()

The way things have been going, anything is possible.   :whistle:

Cross your fingers, light a candle, anything at all to get us through this smoothly.

Maybe an extra backup of the site is in order? :whistle:

I'm sure everything will be fine ... they are professionals after all.  :rolleye:

I did a full cPanel back up yesterday so that I have all the settings from the new host.  I'll be sure to do database backups on everything this evening so we shouldn't lose any posts if there is a problem.  :fingerscrossed:

Well as of 06:01am EST, everything seems to be up and running.

According to the host's site, all servers are now up and running, so it looks like we made it through.  Please let me know if you see anything that doesn't appear to be working correctly!
