    I'll be performing a server move this weekend starting tomorrow (May 12th, 2017).

    After numerous issues, server downtimes and a slew of other things that we're running into in the backend, it's no longer feasible for us to take our time.

    Once the site goes down, it will remain down until I complete the move. My estimation is that it should be up by Sunday night.

    I think @StrawHats can do that. Right? The events month doesn't end til June 10th, so I think there will be lots of time to allow for voting. ;)

    Yes, I can. I'll actually change the deadline.

    Let's hope for a smooth move.

    The move was unsuccessful. Everything looked good during the move up until I noticed many posts were missing and some threads didn't have posts at all. Decided to up the old host and look into why the move didn't work out.

    What is it that's being moved here?

    Are you migrating databases? Moving to another server? Moving from a public cloud to a private cloud?

    Everything. The site files, the database... etc.

    --

    Essentially, what's happening is, during the process in which I upload the database, a few problems kind of come up.
    One, the new host ends up having more information in the database than our old host, which makes no sense what so ever.
    The other problem is that sometimes, the new host has less data than our old host... which also makes no sense.

    I'm not entirely sure what is going on during the database dumping process, but something didn't go right. I'm exploring different options at the moment.

    So what's the plan now? Will it be done next weekend or is it postponed for later?

    I have SC in two different places. I'm going to continue to try to get the database loaded correctly and once I do, I'll make the switch late during the night to reduce downtime.

    I know it wasn't your fault @Shi , but while the site was down The only message was that you broke stuff so If you get hit with a random rock in real life and hear somebody say "FIX DAT SHIT!!!" I promise that I did it in good faith. :p

    Okay. Yeah, we wouldn't want posts going missing and all. Just wanted to put it out there that when I'm trying to access the site this msg pops up. I'm using the site via a proxy right now.

    Take a look at this site:

    https://www.interserver.net/

    Pretty good when it comes to migrating sites and they have good support, good luck.

    Oh, Shi's actually trying to move SC off a shared server, onto another server that we've already acquired. One that he'll have more control over once it's up and running. ;)
