Just a reiteration - I don't think anyone will begrudge you taking the time to get it done. I for one could do with an enforced break from the internet.

Anyway when do you plan to move the server anyway, like on a weekend maybe or it's unofficial until you have a time slot to open up?

It says right in his post.

There is a much better method, but it's very slow and takes around 6-7 hours to complete. However ... it seems to work flawlessly. So I'm going to go with the "slow and it works" method instead.

There really is no "good" time to take down the site, so I am planning on doing it Tuesday night with the new server ready to go on Wednesday morning. And if it doesn't work for some reason it will be a quick transfer back to the original server. Plus I now have extensive backups going so I feel very confident that this will work out.

If all else fails, read the News Box at the top of the forums.  ;)

Sorry wasn't paying attention, but it seems like that time slot for the move isn't so bad. Just get things done, you just take your time to get this done right, good luck the forums are counting on you!! No pressure ;).

Steve seems to be late. It is supped to take roughly eight hours though once it starts.

In theory there is no difference between this server and the old one (from a programming point of view).

On the plus side I have pretty much mastered server management and DNS management because of this experience ... so I guess that is a plus.

Oh yeah, and there were no lost posts this time around (I too have a new system for the forum database backups as well). So happy day for everyone.


of course I need to do my other accounts on the same server ... but one thing at a time...

That's funny. I thought this new world would be... different. Like El Dorado or something. :P
