    Default Server upgrade/move incoming

    Hi everyone.

    Just a quick heads up that early to mid next week sometime, we're going to be acquiring another, significantly more powerful server. That server will become our main webserver, while this server will be retained as a database server. It's hoped that this 2 server setup will significantly improve the website speed during peak usage periods. We aren't suffering any regular downtime at the moment, judging from the lack of complaints, but I'll be the first to admit that things can be a bit sluggish here at the busiest periods. ^^;

    Because we're retaining and repurposing this this server, not replacing it, any downtime caused by this whole process should be fairly minimal. I should be able to give you all 24 hours or so of warning before we actually go through with it.

    Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

    So you're saying the site isn't likely to be unavailable while you're making these server adjustments, right?

    More server power, basically.

    If you need more PM space, contact me and we can work something out.

    In a word, yes. It's hoped to completely eliminate some of the issues we've had.
