NEW TOYS! CEO is upgrading!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

NEW TOYS! CEO is upgrading!

Post by OrangeDragon »

But that also means there may be a little downtime as we transition over. Weekends are out slowest traffic periods, so I will be launching this Sat. morning. During the actual transition there will be about an hour of downtime, after that the database will be pointing to the new server from both the old server version of the site and the new. We will leave it this way while the DNS updates globally, so that should be the ONLY downtime anyone experiences. Once it's clear the new DNS is updated for all hosting companies we'll then drop our old server and be slick and shiny on a new dedicated box.

Thanks for your patience!

The response times from your current server are pretty good. But if new balloons and streamers make you happy, go to it boys!

So just what does this new setup do? In simpleton language, please.

For one, it should be even faster. :-D

For two, it won't be shared with a bunch of other businesses... so we'll have a little more control of what I can make it do. For example, a mod we've wanted is the URL rewrite so instead of "/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1306" it would be "/NEW-TOYS-CEO-is-upgrading.html"

Search engines like it more, and people seeing the link like it more. Makes backups easier, makes future hardware upgrades easier, etc.

It's mostly for me... you guys won't see much, lol.

I trust you'll let the community know if dollars need to be kicked in for rack space...

I mean, you guys are free to donate ;-)

My preferred method of payment is Makers Mark or Mezcal Tequila.

But really my other hosting business + the ad revenue here covers it. One of the main reasons I'm doing it right now instead of 6 months from now is that I had to increase my space anyway to accommodate 2 new clients, and their added yearly fees made the cost practical to make the jump.

LoL, we should go to a subscription model. Everyone needs to donate 1 bottle a month to keep our memberships active.

We have about 350 members, so we'd be set (and drunk) for life! !

Oh, I see, so just being selfish then really. Sniff.
