this new server is actually slightly less powerful (although the way apache server works you should never be able to notice a difference), but it should be quite stable, and it costs half as much :)

If it does not work out, I have a massive behemoth 16 core 32gb RAM beast of a server we can move to, but I think we can dedicate most of the resources on this system to the FF if needed. We have room to grow here.

If you ever see a burp it means I was not involved in the planning :coolhat:

My one mantra is no downtime. Unachievable, but we should all strive for something.

The "moving servers" thread came up for me again, but I took "www." out of the URL and things worked better.

Doka was asking what was up and I dropped a line in that thread to try that.

DNS changes like I made take 0-48 hours to fully change for the world. So, there can be stragglers on the old site. I will check those posts that were orphaned and try to find them a good home.

And yes, you can sometimes force a DNS refresh by taking out www. You can also do this a few other ways, including by your router and in windows. DNS information is cached by your operating system and refreshed as needed, so even when the website is up and fine you may not see it until your own system refreshes it. This is not the same as hitting the reload button in your browser. I am saying this as general knowledge, I know you are aware of this Riddick :crazyjump

Oh doh. As usual I missed your comment underneath. I'm always one log shy of a full load. :D That's what happens when you come in half way through the conversation.

Hey Riddick, I always head over to the Life Boat when things are going on, but I get really lonely over there. Ha!

I prolly would've headed over to the lifeboat had I not got around that hiccup I encountered in the evening.

OTOH, I betcha things won't be so lonesome there if we ever encounter a major disaster due to Internet gremlins or the like!
