Default RPGWatch - Moving to a new server completed

November 25th, 2018, 14:58
Update: The move has been completed and it looks like it is working.

Today, we will move to a new server. At a certain point in time today, you will see a maintenance message, which means the movers are doing their work.

Two things can happen after that:

  1. We'll meet again at the other server. Eveyrthing is fine (or fine enough to make the move work)
  2. Something has gone wrong and we\'ll meet again on this server and the move is postponed
As I have been fiddling with this for a few weeks now, I\'m going for option 1. However as there are some changes under the hood, I have been unable to test all of that with a larg amount of visitors, so we\'ll have to see.

Let\'s be optimistic and see you on the other side…

More information.

Now I'm planning to walk under a ladder and try to see a black cat for some luck

Out of endless curiosity can you provide more details? Is this a change of hardware or software or both? What hardware changed what software change motivation for the change… Just curious - always curious about change and pro/con.

There isn't that much difference. On the new server we have a newer version of PHP, but we could have installed that on the old server as well.
The main reasons are that one of the licenses that comes with the server expires by the end of the year and this server is newer and also slightly cheaper.

But a move like this always offers an opportunity to make some additional changes, which takes more time than planned.

It'd be nice if this was a cluster then you could do a rolling upgrade. Anyway, good luck.

Good, good, that will keep the Russians at bay.

Just a few things I'd like to mention.

Logging on takes me to RPGWatch main page, instead of forums now.

Also, some characters are now broken, especially when you use quote function.

If you mean the characters Chien, Fluent, Joxer and Dart?
I think those characters were broken before the move.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!
