We have moved hosts

Post by PTRACER » 7 months ago

TSO Host has been our home for the past 10 years and it has been mostly okay until this year, when performance has really taken a turn for the worst. They 'upgraded' their servers in March but it feels more like a downgrade and after submitting more support tickets in 6 months than I have in 10 years, I realised enough is enough.

Anyway, as per our other thread - the forum will likely be offline from Sunday evening in the USA / overnight in Europe / daytime in Australian time. At that point I will take the forum offline to prevent any further posting as I need to transfer the database.

Please note the downtime could continue through much of Monday, but I am hoping we will be back much sooner than that.

If you want to be updated when the forum is back online, then click on the spanner icon next to the "Post Reply" button and click Subscribe.

Thanks!

Will that change anything for the ftp client logins?

Yes, the original ones will start working again, albeit with a new password since I don't remember the one I gave you :blush:

I'm very excited for this host move. Awaiting us on the other side is a new-look forum with a few very cool updates, which I cannot wait to reveal :thumbsup:

Yes me too. It's so frustrating. By the way @Everso Biggyballies, are you using the old subSilver style theme, or the newer one I introduced a few years ago?

Yeah, never bothered to change, and it is easy on the eyes! Subsilver 2.5

Okay.

The reason I ask is that I need to upgrade the forum software soon to 3.3.1 and it seems the Subsilver 2.5 theme is no longer compatible. I wanted to check whether it would be a big problem for you to lose it...

Nah I can get used to something different. Its not a deal breaker. I would prefer a forum that works rather than a theme I have got used to that doesnt work! Its easier to accept a new theme than a forum that crashes. :thumbsup:

Knowing our luck, probably something amazing will happen during the GP requiring us to post for hours on end.

Good luck with the transfer, @PTRACER
