Lights Out coming

Recommended Posts

Okay - we have arrived at the painful period of the upgrade. We will be performing upgrades to the database and running tests, which may mean we have to shut the site down for a day or two.
 
We will also be migrating to another Host provider since Arvixe can't get their shit together. This will take place later, more details coming on that.
This is a forewarning - so please tell everyone you know about the coming transitions.
 
I will posts dates when we are ready start.
 
Regards,

Do you want to consider an email distribution list as a backup notification mechanism during the actual migration window conveying site availability so posters avoid logging in and causing potential issues?

No easy way to do that with the current tool set.
 
All I have to do is shut down the app pool if we need to curtail db activity. I'm going to edit the error page to reflect intentional shut downs.

We all are used to logging in and seeing the results. It's going to get better! msp_thumbup.gif

Is it just me, or has the site been more stable lately?  (uploading pics from AXPONA got me thinking..., no crashes?)
 
Did a switch-over occur? or other improvement?  If so THANK YOU.
 
Curious to know if anyone else noticed.

Nope. Still seems to crash quite regularly... in fact, it crashed on my 3 times yesterday.

Seems better than usual.. Could it be because the traffic is so much lighter in spring when the weather improves?

I've been keeping an eye on the server and when it crashes I restart it.
 
We will be migrating to another host soon - probably before the upgrade starts up.
