    This is now confirmed. I just don't have the time it's going to occur just yet. Both machines are at the datacenter and being built and configured, so hopefully everything goes off without a hitch. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Thanks Ian! Is this an upgrade and will it mean no more crashes during games or when a big story breaks?

    Good luck and thanks for the hard work. Some of us are impatient and hard to please on game day. Heh.

    Ian - as others have said, keep up the good work..

    Quick Question, have you made any headway in the DoS attacks that the server was experiencing?

    Also: Are you going to share the specs of the new server??? I've been waiting with baited breath since you made the announcement...

    Seeing as to how easy the boards fall for preseason games, The new servers will surely be put to the test Monday night :)

    Thanks for the upgrades.

    Is it my imagination, or can you feel the change even on a routine post at a slow time? This site is FLYING!

    They moved over to the first new box this morning. Unfortunately the DB Server still isn't ready yet, so they've moved that to Monday AM. That one is much easier since we'll just shut down the board - they'll copy over the DB - I'll change the config file to point the queries to the IP address on the other server, and we'll be good to go.

    So we're halfway there :cool:

    That explains minor quirks like the wrong time posted on posts.

    I know - and I can't currently access the server control panel so I'm waiting for one last installation so I can get in and fix it. Should be able to get in shortly.

    Hmm, whenever I try to do a search for 'brady' I get a database error. I was trying to see if the search archives go back before 8/20ish...

    *points Pats1 up to Ian's post about the DB server not being changed over*

    That means that all the stuff that was unavailable is still unavailable.

    I'm not touching the DB until the other server is installed, and will change the search over then. Have to modify two tables to implement the other search, and will do it then. I've been told it's supposed to happen late Sunday night/Monday morning - so needless to say I'll be heading to bed a little early tonight :cool:

    DB Error was caused by a table that had an error after last night's migration. Full search will be back by Monday morning I promise :cool:

    Ian - how come you are holding out on the server specs? Are you afraid that all of us drooling over it will some how affect its performance????:D

    Interesting - no - although there a couple of tables earlier that had issues. Is it working now?

    No it isn't. There are also a couple of attachments that I can't delete from my control panel.
