Server Move

Aquariumadvice is on the move. Tonight we will be switching over to a new server. We ask for everyones corporation and understanding during this move.

I ask that everyone not upload photos to our photogallery nor upload photos to the discussion board between now and tomorrow morning. The reason for this is because I want to try to limit how many files are lost in the move and images uploaded to both of those locations will be one of the first things lost. Once we have transitioned to the new server you may once again upload files like before.

Tonight I will be moving the database over to the new server. The database is where all of your user information and our message's are stored. I will try to do this as quickly as I can but any messages made between when I take a snapshot of the database and when we move occurs will be lost. If you find a post you made missing this is probably why. Please just repost it as best you can after we have made the transition.

Please continue to access the site via either www.aquariumadvice.com or www.aquariumadvice.com/index.php thru out the duration of the move. Once we are ready a redirection script will be put into place that will send you to our new temporary address. Please do NOT bookmark this temporary address as we will once gain have our regular address back in 24-72 hours.

We have been working all day making sure things are working on the new server but im sure there is something we forgot. Please post any errors you get here in this thread. Once they have been taken care of we will post an update. Please do not double or triple report issues as it will only slow us down in correcting them. If you see someone else has reported something not working you can be sure we are aware and are working to resolve the issue.

If all goes well you as a user will hardly notice the difference.

Once again we wish to thank you for your cooperation during this transition.

Correction to the above.

We have set permissions to not allow uploads on this server at this point. This way we can begin to migrate for the final time images from the gallery and the discussion board.

Users will once gain be able to upload files once we make the transition later tonight.

Update.

The following things are KNOWN to not work at this point. They will work in the future just not tonight.

File attachments

Review script

Small error in the calculators script

Chat script will complain about not being registered (This is because its registred to aquariumadvice.com and once DNS updates for you that message will go away)

Some people may experence issues with having to login alot. Once DNS updates this should go away.

DNS updates...

Who is updated and who is still waiting?

I got my DNS updated sometime this afternoon.

One way to tell is if DNS has not updated your not seeing the banners at the top of the page and the URL in your browser is pointed to http://server1.quality-web-hosting.net/... vs our normal URL.

Once we feel most peoples DNS has updated we will change the path on the outgoing e-mails and on how the site generates its internal URL's. Right now its still generating the temp URL for those who have not had their DNS update. I looked on the old site and we are still getting hits over there relatively frequent.
