Server Move - Update

Thought I'd post a quick update to let everyone know what's happening with the server move...

Currently we're still in the process of migrating everything over to our new servers, but we're into the final stages of that with just one or two items remaining, from there it's a matter of testing everything thoroughly before making the switch.

The current (unofficial!) date for the move to be completed is a week today - Wednesday 12th May, but stay tuned for any changes to this.

On the day of the move you're not likely to notice too much happening aside from the forum being shut for a short period. For the rest of the site both sets of servers will run along side each other during this time. The time it takes for you to start seeing the site through the new servers will vary depending on your internet provider, some will switch in a matter of minutes, some can take up to 48 hours, most will be over within 24 hours though.

I'll post another update when we confirm the moving date, and if anything else comes up in the mean time.

Great to know things are moving along Paul.

Can I just suggest that, if anyone is having a problem getting the site after the move, can they think about using opendns ( http://www.opendns.com ). They are far better than most ISP DNS servers and would mean that Netweather would be available within a few minutes of the changeover. It's easy to use, with how-to's for all operating systems and most routers.

Hope it all goes smoothly.. :)
