OK, initial tests of the new server are going good, no real problems and speed is excellent. It's already running the email servers, and tomorrow afternoon I'll be transfering the rest of the web site and this forum over.

While the data is been transfered, the forum will be offline for a short time. How long depends on how long the DNS servers in your neck of the woods take to update, anywhere between 30 minutes and a couple of hours. If you see the "Forum Closed" message, try again in 30 minutes or so. By tomorrow evening everything should be back to normal.

Glenn

Gizmo, I was just wondering what sort of traffic the site generates. I imagine with the activity on the forum that it could be significant.

Hi Stuart

The entire domain sends out about 40 gig per month, most from the main web site, with maybe 20% from the forum. There's usually 10 to 30 people in the forum at one time, but only a few of those, say 20%, are members. The analytic software says there about 1500 to 2000 unique impressions per day, 300 to 500 visitors. Its busy, but still no load for a web server, it can handle many times that traffic, the cpu spends most of the time doing nothing.

Glenn

Glenn, I seem to have stopped receiving emails when a forum entry is updated. Just checked my settings and nothing has changed there. Is the new server completely set up?

Just posted a new topic in maximiters, and can see it.

may be just old messages on the old server that are not being able to be updated.

Cheers Don...

Some emails are going out, some arn't. Its to do with the email server learning who it can trust, etc. I'll sort it out tonight or first thing tomorrow morning if I need some help.

Its not affecting the forum as such, just some email notifications arn't getting out.
