Server Move! IMPORTANT Please Read!!

On the night of Sunday March 13th, we will hold a six and half hour maintenance window from 10:30 PM EST (Monday, 4:00 AM GMT) until Monday 5:00 AM EST (10:00 AM GMT). During that time, our server will be moved to its new home. The new datacenter is only 2 miles away so downtime should be minimized. This is going to be a complete and total outage. There is always the potental for problems and this is why we will be making backups of the AA files and database's. If all goes well AA will be back online by 6:00am Monday the 14th. If things dont go well then....lets just say it will be a very busy Monday morning for some of us.

An e-mail reminder will be going out to all registered members on Sunday March 13th about this move.

Oh no! What am I going to do if I can't get my AA fix in the middle of the night

Ok seriously, I hope it all goes well. We moved our entire data center at my work (about 50 servers) last December. We only lost one drive. Luckily it was in an array so it was easy to replace.

Good Luck!

Are any of the other sites, like felineadvice, going to be down as well... or just AA?

Just AA, the other sites are on a different server and that datacenter is not moving.

Only for those that only access the irc chat via the java appelet on the site. It will still be accessible through mIRC or other IRC clients.

As kevin stated the only sites affected will be AA and a few of our personal sites. The hosting server will NOT be affected. The hosting server is where we are selling web space, as well as the location for the other pet advice network sites.
