New Hosting! (13th Jan 11 at 1:35am UTC)
I'm sure many of you will have noticed that your vForum may not have been running as fast recently as it used to. I blame the 30,000 registered users across the 6,000 forums we are now hosting {Cool}

We have sourced and are intending to move all forums to a brand new server. Which (based on testing so far) should be more than capable of handling whatever you throw at it {Wink} We're talking about something with 3x the RAM of the current server and 6x the storage space!

The plan for implementing this is as follows:
  • This support forum will be moved over first. It will be the first real forum to run on there so we can check that it is all working. If everything goes according to plan, that should be later this week. This support forum may be offline during the transfer ✔
  • Once I am happy the platform is working on there, all forums will be mass transferred. There will be no downtime for standard forums during this transfer (they may just run a little slower than normal). ✔ New forum signups will be disabled during this time.
  • After all forums are transferred the rest of the smaller services & files will be transferred along with the main vForums websites. Once this is completed new forum signups will be re-enabled.


I'm looking forward to it, I hope you are too {Grin}
- Ross

Update: Tomorrow (Tuesday 25th January) at around 1:30 GMT we will transfer all forums using the vforums.us domain name as their primary address. There should be no downtime during this procedure.

Update: Today (Monday 28th February) the DNS changes for the main vforums.co.uk domain have been made. 99% of forums using this domain have already had their databases transferred to the new server. The rest will be completed shortly.

A couple of teething problems (mainly due to DNS fail, although that was mainly the fault of the person changing the records - me {Lips Sealed} ) but this support forum is now running on the new server {Smile}

Could take a few hours for everyones DNS to update.

I'm guessing that's the reason for most of the images on VFS not appearing, haha. Hopefully everything's back to normal by the morning. {Smile}

I had issue's with iDirectory Support forum not wanting to load, and the API being down just for iDirectory. iHosting in this case, was working 100% though. iD is working fine now, and there are no issues. {Smile}

This support forum is the only one to be moved so far.
