Big Changes Coming to Appliantology - Server Migration

6 posts in this topic

Yep, we're moving to a new webhost.  After several years of good, stable service, our current host has gone sour on us.  I'm moving all my sites, including Appliantology, to a new webhost.  This will be the culmination of more than a week of preparatory work doing the initial transfers and testing behind the scenes.  

 

Sometime in the next day or so, the site will go offline while the final data sync is done and DNS transfer propagates throughout the ISP nameserver databases all over the world.  At first, you will just see a "site closed" screen with a link to our Facebook page where we will be posting updates on the migration.  You can also send me messages through our Facebook page.  Here’s the link to our Facebook page:  http://facebook.com/fixitnowsamurai

 

After a couple days, you will reliably pull up the site on the new server and the good times will roll again! 

 

So, a little pain for what I hope is a lot of gain in terms of site stability and page load speed.  

 

Domo in advance for your patience during this process!

Okay, database corruption at the other server so we're gonna take a do-over.  Appliantology is back open for now.  I'll update this post when we go down again for the next migration attempt.  

 

Thanks again for your patience!

there are two known fixes.....

1) Unplug it for 10 minutes and/or

2) change the timer

and make sure to check the couplers.

Awesome!  I think unplugging it for 10 minutes did the trick!... No, wait, it's still broken.   :sad:

 

Still working on that magic database transfer fix.   :mage:

Never fear folks.... during the last ASTI training, I was able to tag the Samurai. Now we can carefully watch his migratory patterns without losing him. From what I understand Samurais in the wild begin their migration during the coldest parts of winter. So he is right on schedule.

And for you PFTPOS (People For The Preservation of Samurais) crowd, we did not have to administer tranquilizers to tag him. During the normal daily routine of your typical Samurai, all you have to do is follow him to the nearest watering hole where he will gorge himself on fermented hops and barely. Amazingly, this self-stuporing activity allows us to tag him without him ever knowing.
