In case you were curious ...

The forums went down again yesterday. I reported it again and I was told that I really, really, really need to move servers to get away from the old Plesk control panel to cPanel. So I decided to go ahead and do it. Making backups was time consuming but otherwise the hosting company did nearly all of the work including getting the web forum data migrated and running again. I am somewhat pleased.

The update required a DNS change, and those can take hours (sometimes days) to propagate. The old server is marked as 'disabled' so nobody should be able to make new posts there. There is a small chance that somebody made a post that slipped through the cracks; if you have posted here recently please check to make sure that your post did not get lost.

The next big event will be a migration to a newer version of PhPBB. I'll wait for the dust to settle before I attempt that.
