Forum Upgrade Today - Downtime

Recommended Posts

We will begin the forum upgrade in a few hours. It is safe to assume that any post made here after 5pm Eastern Time, may not carry over.

 

This is a re-post (and some minor edits) of what I mentioned previously in the update your email thread....

 

THERE WILL BE SOME DOWNTIME AND GROWING PAINS.

There will also be some time for me to get the current GT Supporters status updated, as we have been using an incompatible method for that. (I need to revert each member back, then manually create an invoice, and "subscription" to get things going.) It is kind of clunky to get going, but will be a nice change and more automated moving forward. I will get everybody fixed up in a day or two, it just won't happen automatically through the upgrade process.

 

In addition to updating the forum, we're changing physical hosts, which means DNS propagation delays, and even though there is a temp site that I can access, any changes I make (to make it feel like home) will be wiped out during the update, so I can't even do that. To top it all, due to the way DNS propagates, there is a high probability that you may have access to the new site before I do :lol

If it looks generic, but the posts and people look familiar, you're good to go, until I can get in and edit things :)

 

One thing to note, I will change the URL from forum.greytalk.com to just greytalk.com, we'll drop the subdomain, it's just cleaner that way moving forward, though it will break all the search engine links. I'll forward forum.greytalk.com to greytalk.com so you'll get there, but you'll want to update your bookmarks in all your devices. This will probably mean your login cookies won't work, so if you haven't ensured your email address is correct and that you know your password, this is your last chance.

 

The whole upgrade process will take several hours, and DNS can take up to 24 hours, which means some people will be directed here (in limbo), and others to the new site until it propagates everywhere.

 

See you on the other side. Fun times!

I just turned on a "Bug or error Reports" forum, please post any POST-UPGRADE issues there, so I have a single place to find them.

Oh, you'll know! :lol ...if it looks like this, it's the old one, if it looks quite different, it's the new one.

11th hour issue, we'll remain at forum.greytalk.com with a greytalk.com redirect, as it always has been. Reversing that created a whole host of issues.

I'll dive more into this tomorrow.

Enjoy!
