Site upgrade and relocation

Post by red »

:roll: it's that time again.

The operating system of the server hosting the website will no longer be supported for updates from April and since we like to be able to update to stay secure we need to upgrade to a newer operating system

As part of the relocation we will be taking the opportunity to update the board software to the next release stream.

Typically the former doesnt cause issues but the latter generally causes a few issues to resolve with some of our customisations.

The board will likely be switched over during an evening, so if it is unavailable for a period then don't panic, we'll be back.

Site upgrade and relocation

Post by red »

Well after disabling the board at 19:30 I've moved everything to the new server, performed the upgrade of board, extensions and re-implemented the 'ProjectPuma' theme. The board has been re-enabled at 01:30 and following some basic testing it all appears to be working.

Hopefully everything will be fine but if you do come across something which doesn't work then put a post in the 'Site Support' section.

Thanks and good night.
