I will be moving the site over to a new server tonight at about 1am est. The new server has latest stable versions of PHP, MySQL, Red Hat, and Apache.

The reason for the move is to take full advantage of the front end software updates that is coming down the pipeline.
Downtime will be kept to a minimum because I am transferring to another server that is already upgraded vs doing in-place upgrades. (some upgrades can't be done in-place and some are risky anyway).

My IPs and nameservers are coming too so there will be no waiting for DNS propagation.
The transfer process will take about 60 minutes. If you try to access the site during the move you will get a forum closed message and possibly some database/server error messages.

Good skill on the transition. I would say good luck but luck is not involved :). Thx for an awesome forum.

Well, it took 24 mins longer. May have to do a server re-start in the next few mins.

I'm rebuilding the Apache configuration file so that is probably why.

On a positive note, the poker room seems very zippy. But anything to do with posts/search/whatever takes a lot longer now. A lot longer.

Everything should be good to go now. Had to do some software/setting optimization and rebuild Apache.

Well i certainly appreciate what you're doing with the site. I'm glad you know what all this programming jargon means.
