    Tomorrow evening we will start migrating everything from this server to a brand new one. It's been over 3 years since the last move and we have quickly outgrown our present setup and some of the software is now, in computer years, antique. The new setup will be faster and and more secure.

    There is a LOT of work to do before and after the server move, but it's worth it to keep MotorhomeFun the no1, bestest, most brilliant motorhome enthusiast club in the world (probably) ;)

    I'll tell you more tomorrow (y)

    I could think of better ways of spending a weekend - like sunbathing on a beach in Corfu...

    Good luck Jim and thanks for keeping me faster and more secure! ;)(y)

    Naturally, only if you're a good boy, millions, miracles may happen (but probably won't).

    I think @Gromett (Karl) will possibly be by Jim's side during the process. ;) No Wallace though. :LOL:

    Cheers,

    Jock. :)

    Yes thankfully Karl is doing the migration. We might disappear forever if I did it on my own :rofl:

    Nothing on the forum will change, so its not like the last upheaval where you all had new software to learn. The only issue that will occur is it might take a few hours for some of your internet service providers to learn where the new IP address MotorhomeFun's is residing at is located. In all and :fingers crossed: the down time will be measured in minutes and not days ;) Then we'll have a few days firefighting as you tell us about things that have broken but those should be few compared to the last move.

    I'll keep you all informed about whats going on in out twitter feed https://twitter.com/mhfun So you might want to book mark that link now (y)
