UPDATE: Forum To Be Down For Maintenance May 27 & 28, 2019

Post by Admin1 » Fri May 24, 2019 7:31 am

Envesko, our web hosting service, will be relocating our forum server to a new data center on this date. This activity is expected to last from 9am-9pm Eastern Time.

During this time, all services will be offline while we relocate the server from Chicago to Kansas City. This relocation is required as our upstream provider is closing their facility. We have been working with this and other providers diligently to have the smallest window of downtime, and the best option was to relocate our services to Kansas City. The choice to relocate to Kansas City was one that was made carefully and with the interest of our customers in mind. This was the best decision for long-term stability and to avoid an increase in our costs which would require price increases.

!!! UPDATE !!!


Please be advised that we have been able to make arrangements with our datacenter team to adjust the relocation window of our server. The relocation will now begin on the U.S. National Holiday, Memorial Day, and overnight, to better accommodate all of our customers and reduce the impact. The relocation will now begin on Monday, May 27, 2019, at 6PM, and end on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, at 8AM Eastern Time. This should avoid any potential of excessive road traffic and we are reducing the transit time and risk of delays due to traffic congestion. All services should be back online by 7 to 8AM Tuesday morning.

Not when you're literally driving the hardware from Chicago to Kansas City. :s_biggrin Over 500 miles, almost 8 hours drive time.

I will be taking the forum offline a little before the 6PM start time on Monday. The forum will not be visible at all while the hardware is in transit, until it is powered up and brought back online.

The relocation certainly took much longer than originally planned, but the move is now complete and the forum is back operational.
