Server Move!

Postby menyak » Sun Jan 16, 2011 1:53 pm

Hi guys - just a quick heads up that we will be moving to a new server shortly. Transition will start early Monday morning and *could* potentially take up to 72 hours (although for most, it will be much quicker). Have a safe trip, and see you on the other side! ;-D

Sorry for the mess, but those who've been here long enough already know me. :-D The worst is over, I'm tired and taking a break now. Theories, as to why some avatars show up, while others aren't, are very welcome. ;-)

Anything else broken or missing? Please let me know!

FYI, my avatar wasn't showing up, but I went into my user control panel, deleted the image, and then reloaded it and it is showing just fine now. Sorry I don't have any theories why some avatars didn't make the migration, but it looks like they can be easily restored. ;-D

I don't know if whole threads disappeared, but I noticed some posts added to threads by myself and others disappeared. For example I made a post to the Michigan Wolverines thread yesterday and it was gone today so I re-posted it. This also happened to another thread I added a post to and I noticed this happened to a couple other guys as well in other threads.

Well it's more an academic question, as the posts cannot be recovered. But I took an extremely conservative approach this time - locked the forums, ran mysqlhotcopy (which should flush any unsaved queries from memory to the database before copying), moved the files over to the new server, unzipped them, and then reopened the forum. It's totally beyond me, how even a single post could have escaped. :-P

I dunno - I know for a while there was a red banner at the top of the page that said Information: This board is currently... (can't remember the rest), but one could still do things I think. I seem to remember this happening once before a long time ago (another server change?), but if memory serves, I think the posts "magically" re-appeared later once the new server kicked in. There didn't seem to be a lotta people here yesterday (maybe because of the red banner) so I don't think a lotta posts were lost.

Not a big deal in any event, just wanted to let ya know. ;-D
