Server Swap Imminent.
« on: February 28, 2014, 11:31:43 AM »
As some of you may have noticed, we have had some downtime and issues with our hosting speed in recent months.

Our current host isn't what they once were since an ownership change, and its time to move again.

We will sometime over the next few days be moving RUA to a new host (the one GoGabber.com is on - that site was test pilot before we moved RUA). This will involve the site being down for a short while until the nameservers propagate the change where you are.

I'll update the topic when I know more details. Any questions, please ask.
I apologise.
And so he should.........

New server is actually in the UK.  :GOUK:

Most of the work is done, archives are over, just waiting on Herrie to have some free time to do the final bits and we can flick the domain. Hopefully, this will be sometime this week.

It is worth noting that when it happens, you will see "old" RUA has a "maintenance" message up. To hasten your computer to recognise the new server and route to that instead, using Ctrl + Alt to refresh may help. As may using a browser you don't normally use with no stored history.

Sporadic behaviour might be expected for 24 hours or so depending where you are in the world.

Is is possible on the new server to limit the number of threads regarding the current FSU political situation to say around 10? I do hope so, it's getting silly now ....  :(

Might have some time later today or tomorrow to check things on the new server.

Yes, I am not sure how long that takes to catch up. Can be up to 48 hours depending where you are.

I admit, I know little of these things, But I do know a guy who does this sort of thing,
is it normal to have so many issues. He does most of his in a matter of minutes,
and sorts out small problem's very quickly.
