Petit Chablis now!  ;D

Actually, Rory @Vidahost is da man! I spoke to four tech support people (one of whom was an RW strangely enough) on this before Rory nailed it this evening and talked me through the fix. I was tearing my hair out with the site down all day before I spoke to him.

The host imported us from the old server a few days ago - no easy task because our image files are so large - and Herrie took care of the database update and real-time swap over details this morning.

All I had to do was sort out the nameservers, A records, DNS glue and the easy stuff. Which I then promptly broke.  :chuckle:

A guy from GoDaddy chimed in with a temporary dirty fast fix [that worked] early evening before Rory did his stuff - gotta love that "can do" American service ethic. Even though GoDaddy are a totally crap host, they are a good registrar and they have some really good tech guys. That bloke made me feel all warm and fuzzy even before he had fixed it.  :thumbsup:

But it looks like we are here and pretty much together. Please mention any gremlins you find on the topic here so I can take a peek at them.

I so love that American "can do" attitude........... we need some of that over here. Over here it is all "Well, I will have a look". In the US it is more like "Yes, we will get that fixed up for you. You will be up and running in no time"

That is a bit of America I really do like!

I was about to write, it is much faster, when it froze  up solid, would not load page. Had to click out of browser, the come back on.
When going from page to page, seems much quicker.

A ton of attachments are still missing, I'm working on that. Seems like FTP clients are limited to 10.000 files in a folder and that was reached in 2009 already, so still need almost 5 years of attachments to move across ;)

Site is faster, yet it has locked up several times, going from page to page, when this happens, only seems to work, if exit our and re-enter.

Probably, but you never can be sure  :)  I think Herrie will sort it sometime soon.

I'm sticking one of my boxes into Colo soon hopefully - RUA is welcome to use it maybe as a failover server or full time if there's capacity, free of course.

It's a Sun X4450, 4 x 4 core 2.3gig Xeons, 128gb ram, 8 x 146gb SAS disks, will be sliced up into VPS's for automated Algo trading which I feel is a disaster waiting to happen but I've got to give it a go.

Bit old-tech by todays standards, but still a meaty bit of kit. We got early access to IBM POWER8, or PowerVC as it seems to be now where I'm at now, I want one!

I don't see why that would have disappeared. But if you use Chrome, it has it built in.

I'll see if Herrie can find it. He has fixed our images. All 46000 of them.  :o

Ste, that is Double Dutch to me. As Herrie is Dutch, he can comment on if that is handy. Ta.

It's an hour ahead of London...perhaps Herrie's time? :)

I noticed it yesterday.  It used to be EST (one hour ahead of me) and now it is 7 hours up.  It makes sense to have it on UK time though (+6) as it is Manny's site (or even GMT)  :biggrin:
