Moving to a new server.
« on: January 25, 2006, 02:41:29 PM »
We are moving all of RFF's sites, including the forum, the news site, and the podcast, to one server this weekend. On Friday, the forum will go into maintenance mode, and will stay there, until the server move is complete. I expect the move to take less than 12-15 hours. However, this could not be the case, and we could be down until at least Saturday night.

Please understand, this is a necessary move, and I wouldn't do it, unless I knew it would make this site better. Thanks for understanding, and thanks for being such great members!

Its taking a lot longer than I expected. It maybe closer to 3:30pm EST time before I get the forum transfered. The forum will the the last site I transfer, just to keep it up the longest. Right now I am transfering all the podcasts over to the new server, and next will be the news & forum sites here!

It will be another hour or so!!

Thanks puddin. It worked out good for me b/c I had lots to do around the house anyway. 
Will the pages load faster with the server switch? Sorry, I'm not sure exactly what to expect from changing servers.

Maybe the pages will load faster, but mostly it was so we could accomodate for more users, and direct downloads of the podcast, and to also have all the sites on one central server!

Thanks
