Hi All
TheDaddy.org Forum will be offline for a couple of hours tonight as I transfer us to a new UK based server.
Wish me luck!

Hear hear!

I take it that all has worked, then, since it's 8:39am and the forum's working marvellously?

I agree.

Everything seems to be running super quick and shiney

Yay for the not realising what's going on until it's already done and everything is working smoothly!

Erm, not quite. I've got all the files and databases copied over to our new server but I'm trying to fine tune some subdomain and email issues before I hit the big 'transfer domain' switch. Should get it finished tonight.

Although the new copy of the forum is already up and running. You can access it here - http://www.thedaddy.org.uk/forum - but the databases aren't synched so posts here won't appear there and vice versa. I'll sync them up manually before we go live.

Hello!
OK I've got the forum ruinning on the new server but the rest of TheDaddy.org is still on the old server.

What does this mean for you?
Hopefully a faster service with none of those CPU overload errors.
Possibly a few error messages (I could get into the issues here but let's just say the new server works quite differently to the old one). None of these messages should mess up functionality but can you let me know when and where you get the messages and copy me the text. I can fix them easily enough.
The old URL (http://forum.thedaddy.org) still works for everything and will always continue to work. However the new server is branded as http://www.thedaddyforum.co.uk so you can get all the same stuff though that address.

Feel free to ask any questions, I know this is all a bit random right now.

OK do other people notice a major speed improvement? Particularly with accessing the first look page?
I don't wanna jinx things but I think I may be suddenly very very happy...

Woo I love the fast new server!

I have been getting some odd SQL errors when I make second opinions but they still seem to work.

Cool, fixed that error. There will probably still be a few of these errors kicking about on the forum, most will say 'undelared variable' or something to that effect. If you can copy the error text into here I can get them fixed PDQ

It's really not an issue, but I just tried to log on with Javascript turned off (unsurprisingly it failed) and the 'Processing...' page had:

Notice: Undefined index: alias in /home/fhlinux170/t/thedaddy.org.uk/user/htdocs/user_admin.html on line 18

Notice: Undefined index: pwd in /home/fhlinux170/t/thedaddy.org.uk/user/htdocs/user_admin.html on line 19

Notice: Undefined variable: bd in /home/fhlinux170/t/thedaddy.org.uk/user/htdocs/user_admin.html on line 42

Also, if you preview a post you get:

Notice: Undefined index: nobr in /home/fhlinux170/t/thedaddy.org.uk/user/htdocs/preview.html on line 21

There's not a lot I can do about the no javascipt errors. Without JS you're just a bit stuck!
I've fixed the preview window though

OK after the impressively rubbish new server I am very pleased to announce that the Forum is now back running on the old server in America.
Damn it's good to be back!

Hi All
There will be some more downtime today as our server gets upgraded to PHP 5 allowing me to do lots of fun new things and get TDDO looking sexier than ever

OK the shift has been done. You might notice the address bar has gone a bit funny (I'm looking into that) and you'll have to log in again but other than that all should be well. Let me know if you get any errors.
