    Exclamation Forum server migration Coming

    Hello all,
    Been a while.Hope all is well with everyone.

    I am in the middle of migrating the forum's server to a new dedicated server. The server has been bought and its been set up already, once I am through testing it out...it will go live.

    Our current server is at end of life and needs to be retired.

    You should not experience any problems but if you do please post them here. You never know what will happen when moving as much information as we have stored here at SimplyDiscus.

    This will be the first upgrade for the forum in awhile. Once accomplished the team will be working on a major software change..Thats the goal at this point at least, time and funds allowing.

    Stay well,
    Al

    As you know I know little to nothing about this stuff. Will this migration give us new photo software? Sure would be nice.

    That's great news Al. Good to hear from you again as well! FWIW, I was surprised by the positive changes over at PlantedTank.net when they migrated their software.... picture management became so much easier and forum participation definitely increased...

    is it rehosting only, or you are planning to move it out of vBulletin ?

    Hope the migration goes well Al.

    For anyone reading this you move the existing software to the new server before making any changes. Once things are stable then you can start making changes.
