Konichiwa to all seekers of appliance wisdom. I hope we've helped you get your appliance fixed. If you're a MySQL database wizard, the Samurai could use your help.

I got an eviction notice from my current webhost. The Abuse Coordinator contacted me complaining that the forum is using too much server resources. I'm "allowed" 30 GB of bandwidth per month and I only use half that each month but, apparently, if you have a busy site, like this one, they just don't like that-- they like sites that get one or two visitors a day so they can load up the server with 300 other hosted websites and make more $$. So they told me to shove off. I have less than a month to move. All this while I'm trying to rebuild my crashed computer... and run service calls to make a living.

Ok, nothing gets done by whining about it. Just wanted to let y'all know wazzup and enlist your help.

Moving this forum's database and importing it to a new server is a pretty complicated task, way beyond my humble compooting skills. If you're a MySQL database wizard and know how to do these types of migrations, please let me know. You can either post here or send me a PM.

Domo.

Problem solved! I figgered out how to import a database via SSH. Sound complicated and arcane? It did for me, too-- I knew nothing about that stuff and still know next to nothing. But I seem to be happily on the way to getting this forum transferred, complete and intact, to another webhost server. So, emergency is over, stand down, go back to what you were doing. Smoking lamp is lit. :tokin:

I see you've got the info you need, but if you run into any snags with the move, send me an email.  Your site has been really great for me and I'd be glad to help out if you need a hand.

Domo, Dag; I appreciate your offer and, well, ol' Samurai just might take you up on that! Things *seem* to be running... for now. I've had to delve into more server minutia during this migration than I ever hoped I'd have to know :knifehead: but it seems to have come through ok. Still looking for bugs that might have popped up in the migration-- lot's of opportunities for large database files to get corrupted.

Do you have any experience with dedicated server web hosting on an Apache/Linux server?
