Issues and upgrades

Postby pdu on Fri Apr 03, 2009 3:38 am

Hi guys and gals, we had yet another attack on the site the other day, but cleaned it up once again, as part of our efforts to improve things, the site will be moved to a new server where I've prepared it with more security tools. As a result of the upgrade, the site will go down for about 15 minutes on saturday morning and then return, thereafter the move will take around 24 hours for the world to realise we've moved machines. As a result of this move (the 24 hours comes from updating DNS records) you may notice temporary issues with files appearing to be on the site but failing to download, or the odd missing image/avatar, we'll be resyncing the servers with each other every 30 minutes throughout this period so the very rare missing item will appear quite fast, once the move has completed, everything will return to normal, only faster :) As for when the server is going down exactly, these things are hard to say, but I'm aiming for 11am GMT.

Many thanks for all your patience, it will be worth it we promise :D

Just so that everyone knows, this man is a freakin' genius and without him we'd probably be pulling the plug on ACAPELLAS4u.

I can't thank you enough pdu and this will mean that all of our plans and dreams for the next 3-4 years will hopefully come true.

All I did was test, I owe the entire success and smoothness of this project to pdu. Without him none of this would've been possible. I think ye'all need to buy him a pint or two!

What do you reckon pdu?

Thanks to both of you. I know you two work your a..es off for this, so its only fair to thank you both.
Even if i was not with it from the start, and dont come here that often, i can see the efforts that went into this.
Much respect for all this, im looking forward to another 3-4... no 3-99 years of acapellas4u.

Ok people, I've made a fair few code changes to improve this, hopefully its done the trick. Previews are working again, submit only needs clicking once on quotes and pm's work. Any issues, please send me a pm as I get notified of these in my inbox and I can look into them.

Thank you all for your patience, I know its been annoying, but hopefully we're there now.

Regards

Thanks pdu for staying up til the early hours.. you deserve some sleep. Well done and from what I can tell immediately is that the site seems uber-quick. Perhaps it's aided because it's good time in the morning here..
