    We'll be having some scheduled maintenance tonight in a few hours. The forums will be locked down and moved to a new server. We'll provide you with the IP you can add to your hosts file to switch over to the new server immediately.

    See you on the new server.

    EDIT: Postponed until tomorrow. The downtime should be very short and mostly depend on how long it takes for you to see the new server.

    Server maintenance COMPLETED with little to no issues. Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
  2. Is this a permanent move for the forums ?

    No, we'll be moving again when we get our new server.

    Yes, we all see it now. So many changes, had to force to redirect DNS over to the new IP though in able to login. :S

    Thank you for providing the new IP this time;)
    Maybe you could add a line for the mac users, because they have to run this command after adding the IP to the hosts-file:
    Code (Text):
    2. dscacheutil -flushcache

    Both of those sites are still on the old server. Due to a DNS misconfiguration they're pointing to the new server. I can only do something about this in about 4 hours. In the meantime, if you need to access those pages you'll have to setup a hosts entry pointing to This will work fine until the 23rd, when our old box goes offline. However, for the wiki, you run the risk of seeing old content.

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    Should of set a low TTL on them for the time being then.

    What kind of hardware is powering the site now?

  29. Congratulations on a successful move. As a server admin, I know how difficult that can be.

    so far, most things look good.. (haven't poked around much). seems pretty transparent for the casual user anyhow. Only I have noticed is the missing 'not getting any help' banner that was on the help forum posts. Not sure how effective it was, although it did seem like more users were starting w/ the necessary info than before.

    not a high priority.. just wanted to bring it to attention
