Potential Break in Service - Forum and Website Server Change

Postby GG » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:52 am

Hi all,

The hosting company for the Magiscroft Forum and Website is closing down their service and Ronnie has asked me to move over to another provider. I've started this process which should be straightforward and take place over the next few days or weeks, by end April.

At one stage the internet domain registration will have to change over so unfortunately there's likely to be gap in service while the changes take places. Hopefully not for long. If I can work out exactly when that is I will tell you here ... but it might take me by surprise! Apologies in advance.

Once the cutover happens you shouldn't notice any difference.

Cheers
GG

Forum will be cut over to a new host over the next day or so.

Apologies if any posts get lost on the way ... just keep a close eye on this Tommy and make sure any new posts are at least ‘remembered

Hi all. Looks like it will be Monday evening cut-over, so no problem at the moment. Cheers.

Hi all,

I’ll be triggering the server switch this evening, sometime after 9pm. I’m not sure whether access will be lost for a while or not, but any posts made after that time for a while might be lost. Apologies if that happens but unavoidable.

Cheers

Hmmm. So the move seems to have happened ok. Posts do work but you also get this error message, which doesn’t stop the post working, but is disconcerting.

Will get onto tech support ..
