The new site can be found at http://126.96.36.199
for the record. I've taken the forums offline, and will take these offline when performing the forum move. Nothing that gets posted will be lost.
Okay, as some of you know I'm not exactly right in the head at the moment so I'm distracting myself with something suitably mindless and necessary. One of these things is a long-overdue server move... which is in progress now >_>
The first phase is the wiki and the front end of the site, or 'blogs'. After the cron runs its backup in a little less than two hours from this post, I'm baleeting it all. It's going to be replaced by a scary looking message on the front of the site that will partially explain things.
After that, tomorrow, I will be moving over the forums proper. While that will only take me a few minutes, it can take as much as a day for caches to clear. Because of that, the front page of this site is going to be replaced with Elliquiy's shiny new dedicated ip address.
For those of you in the know, yes, that means we're going to have proper ssl (https) soon. Hopefully it will also allow us to have a real search engine if I can get Sphinx to work. Since I'm the type to get things to work in general I'm not too worried about that.
I'll post the IP address when the forums have moved.4 AM CST:
All of the files have been moved, and the notice is up on the front. Today's DB backup in in the process of being appropriately integrated.5:30 AM CST:
Everything is working on the new server (aside from some craziness regarding the domain name), including a copy of the forums. There's going to be another big bold annoying piece of text going up top soon.
Everything is now in order for the move. Any uploaded avatars from now on will be lost. Any posts you make on these forums after the 4:30 AM EST backup will be lost, but since the backup freezes the forums, don't count on making it.
4:30 AM EST is 3:30 CST / 1:30 PST / 2:30 MST for the US, which I think will be 8:30 AM GMT.
Afterwards, there will be about a day's worth of funny business regarding the domain name. The raw IP resolves to Elliquiy, however, so things should only be down for about an hour at the most.
