Right, from Barnabas,

Quote:
The new server is up and we can do the transfer, but since DNS/Nameservers will have to be changed on your domain(s), which only you can do and because your site will have some downtime, we should schedule a time when you and anyone on your technical staff and myself are available via instant messaging so we can do this in real time. I estimate that the copy process form the old server to the new will take about 30-45 minutes. Please Keep ion mind that we have 5-6 hours difference between us, I am on New York time.


Are we ready to go with this? Like confident that not too much of the current gubbins will be broken, or do we need a bit more time?

I'll get hold of the nameserver details (assuming I can still remember passwords etc, forgotten that stuff for dark). I'm thinking me and Milk to work on the transfer. Barnabas uses IM on ICQ or MSN. I'm good for both.

If we can do it soon, maybe Wednesday evening ?

Saddle up cowboys!

Milk asked me today to host the Forest website on my server.

I can do this for free and can create and activate the account and all the stuff we need (DNS/FTP/HTTP/SSH/Mail) in 10 minutes.

It also means it will be easier to keep stuff (PHP etc) up-to-date and without fees.

@duncan; i'm afraid wednesday evening is full for myself. times that work are thusday fom 9:30, friday afternoon or all-day sunday.

i'm confident that things shall upgrade well enough and tha any issue could be dealt with as soon as. jabber would be best, bu msn'll do for me :)

@mike; i was asking for sever space to set up a drupal 6 test site to Get Things Done while we were waiting for Barnabas to be ready for the server upgrade - although it's a moot requirement now i guess, thanks though.

at one point it was suggested the existing site should be preserved (at least for a while) at e.g. http://theforest.org.uk/old
is that still gonna happen? probably a good idea...?

Hey Dirk,

This shift is just onto a newer server at our host, won't change anything about the site, just allow us to do more when we want to.

Nope, I'm currently semi-mobile and recuperating in Fife so it's all cyberspace.

Physical presence is like so last century.

I'll have been running sound for an event in the evening, so I'll probably be action rooming it too.

So, all went well, we're now on a fresh new server with the fancy versions of PHP and MySql etc.

We also have double our storage allocation, now up to 12GB.

The fact that no one has actually noticed I think is all due credit to Milk and myself ;)
