------Now Complete - Friday 30th July-----


Hi,

I'm in the process of moving Rossendale Online over to a shiny new server but this means I'll close the forums whilst the update takes place. The forums will be now be closed until the latest threads ans posts have been synchronised with the new database.

The transfer shouldn't take too long, but please note that it can take up to 24-48 hours for your internet provider to update their DNS settings to enable you to see Rossendale Online on the new server.

Thanks for your patience and I'll try and keep the disruption down to a minimum.

Any probs, please let me know

Re: Server move - Rossendale Online down

Hi foilks, it's seems it gonna take a bit longer than first thought to shift what is quite a hefty database.

Therefore, the server move has been postponed for now and is probably best to shift it overnight or let it run over the weekend.

Cheers,
Lee

Re: Server move - Rossendale Online down

The transfer is to be tried again this morning, so you will see some downtime whilst I close the forums to enable a clean backup.

Following a successful backup, we'll transfer the database and forums over to the new server.
Once opened on the new server, you'll be able to post on there.
You may still the forums closed on the old site for up to 48 hours, which is due to how the DNS works at your ISP, however many do update theirs quickly lately.

Any probs, please let me know.

Re: Server move - Rossendale Online down

We have now successfully moved Rossendale Online onto a brand new server, which should mean it'll run faster and hopefully no downtime.

Some of the more eagle eyed will have noticed the URL's have changed too.

They used to look like this - rossendaleonline.co.uk/showthread.php etc etc. I've now implemented a change which makes them look a bit more readable, for instance this thread is now:

http://www.rossendaleonline.co.uk/an...own-10183.html

All previous links and URL's to the old format will automatically be forwarded to the new structure.

I've been going through the site and trying to spot things that I may have missed, but if you spot something before I do please send me a PM which is the quickest way and I can get it fixed asap.

Cheers,
Lee
