Time to spruce up for fall!

work-n-manIt’s time to do some server work – going to be doing some adjustments & upgrades

  • FlockHosting Customer Zone (https://secure.flockhosting.com) – Migration
  • FlockHosting Knowledge Base (http://kb.flockhosting.com) – Migration
  • Solomon Server – Storage Upgrades

Why?

The migrations are long overdue, needing to get some new hardware powering these services properly – As for the storage upgrade, I was blessed by the datacenter with some free additional resources! So going to be applying these to Solomon!

 

When?

Today I will begin with the Knowledge Base, a pretty quick and easy transition, this will migrate the entire site over – no content will be added until the site has fully migrated, the server upgrades to Solomon should take about 15 minutes and should DOUBLE the storage on Solomon allowing for some more growth!

The Customer Zone will not migrate until Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning, after the nightly run of maintenance the Billing & Support systems will be placed into maintenance mode, this will allow the data to be migrated to the new server without change.

 

What do I do?

Not much you need to do, if you find yourself in need of support simply check the communicate page (http://www.flockhosting.com/communicate) for ways to get in touch, email is likely your best bet, I’ll be monitoring Live Chat, Google Talk and Facebook if you need any help or support during this outage.

 

Wait… What?

Unsure? Have a question? Send me a note! Ask away, if you’re not sure what any of this means or if it applies to you please let me know! Happy to help!
