Maintenance: server move, some downtime

Post by Gwaihir » Wed Jul 28, 2004 10:59 pm

Within the next few days MeCCG.net will move to a different webserver. A move necessary to bring the over all availability of the site back to what it should be. A 5 to 20 minute downtime of (parts of the site)and possibly a lost post or two if you happen to hit the "wrong" moment are sadly inevitable. We will do the best we can to keep the inconvenience to a minumum.

Background: this website is hosted on a machine shared with a good number (nearly a hundred?) other users. It seems that together we have steadily outgrown this machine's capabilities what has over the past months lead to (an increasing number of) times were the site is unavailable because the machine is overloaded. The solution to this problem is simple: some of the users on the machine will have to move out to a different machine where capacity is still available, so that is exactly what we will do.

The move should be complete now and the last issues resolved. If you find anything further, please let me know.

If anyone used the IP address for ftp access: it has changed. Best use ftp.meccg.net instead.
