Server move


Post by Keith » 15 Sep 2017, 21:17

Those if you who follow us on facebook will know that we have been busy recently moving the forums from an old legacy hosting server to a new upgraded server.

To help do this, without losing any users or posts we disabled the forums and the registration form so that we could make sure we were using a copy of the most recent database when we transferred the site to the new server.

This was the first time I have ever attempted to move a website, so unfortunately I did run into a few issues and errors along the way and the process was slower than I would have liked.

I finally completed the process for this and some other websites I was also transferring last night.

Hopefully you'll notice that the new server makes the site run faster.
