    We have long been running short on disk space so I now have a new server being set up ready for me to move almost 500gb of files over to.

    Fingers crossed there should be no downtime and for the most part you should not experience any issues.

    There is always a chance I missed something in the setup though.

    Ill keep you posted as things are moved and when its complete.

    The new server should see us ok for another year

    Nice going Looperman. Thanks for keeping us informed. Your hard work is most certainly appreciated! Good luck with upgrade.

    Cheers!

    500gb... For EVERYTHING on this site?? :O

    I thought it'd be wayyyy more for some reason.

    Just goes to show how much is actually done on this site by Shan for little in return!

    As a network manager in a large school, I've found that our 500gb server is pretty maxed out running everything that is needed! So kudos to Shan the man for all the work he does for a free, international website!

    Memory is really cheap nowadays
    500 gb used to be a lot
    but two terrabyte drives now... crazy stuff
    more memory than we know what to do with
    pain to move though

    i cant change my avatar
    im not sure its a site problem though
    my computer is a mess...

    I was wondering if servers have Bob Dylan's Gotta Serve Somebody as background muzak while your waiting to finalise your deal with them. ;)

    What was that thread last week about Mr LooperShan not giving anything back?
    Naw, it's slipped me mind already . . . . . . .

    The move is in progress now but I wont switch to the new server fully until its all been tested.

    Lots of data zipping through the wires as we speak

    the database is moved over now as are most of the files. Ill be running a final sync to bring over any new files uploaded in the last few days before turning the old server off.

    Ill also get back to anyone who has mailed me while ive been busy when this is complete

    I have blocked uploads to the old server now and allowed them on the new server.

    As a way to tell which server you are now on I added the word NEW to the welcome on the homepage.

    As the DNS propagates you should all start to see the site running from the new server.

    As all the data is being run from the new server we wont loose anything and during the next 24 hours the old server will be phased out.

    any problems let me know here

    First of all; thank you for clearing things up the way you do!

    Somehow I'm still not able to upload any tracks; double checked it and can't seem to get on the new server either. Or maybe I'm just impatient and I'll have to wait a few hours?

    yeh it takes a bit of time for things to move through different ISPs

    if people start to see they are now on the new server leave a post to say where abouts in the world you are and well get a picture of things are moving along

    Another way to tell which server your seeing is to look at the footer and see if it says Old Version 211 or New Version 211

    I am still on the old server as of the time stamp of this post.

    Well that gives me good reason to break from loop making.

    Cheers Looperman!

    Looks like a few people had problems registering during the move as emails were not being sent out.

    This has been resolved now and the forms are working fine again
