Post subject:  New Server

Hello all,

Yesterday I bought our new server in the French datacenter I was talking about in another topic. The problem now is that I have cancelled the current server so to avoid paying for another month, which means it is due to go offline on the 27th. The new server has been paid for but is not online yet, and I have no ETA as to when it will be online.

Because of this, if the server does go offline we will be transferred to the home server, yet again, until the new server is online. Then it will take around 12 hours to completely set up the new server again.

I'm hoping this won't be the case and that the new one will be online before the current server goes off. Remember this will make the site a lot faster for the majority of members as it will be European based rather than US based. It will also be in the same datacenter as the SillyProject FTP (as far as I am aware). If not it will be on the same network.

I hope if BA goes offline it won't cause anyone any problems.


EDIT: Specs:

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 HyperThreading 3.00GHz
RAM: 2 GB DDR
Hard disk: 750 GB
Type of disk: IDE / SATA2
Bandwidth: 100 Mbps
Traffic limit: Unlimited

Sounds good! It could also be another backup for our files, if you wanted.

I was thinking that. I was thinking of making our server the main server and SillyProject a mirror.

That would work, especially because it has unlimited bandwidth. (SP does also, right?)

Yes SP does too but it also means I can do CRC checks etc. Something I can't do on SP because I don't have root access.

That doesn't tell me how long the BetaArchive will be offline. I was asking how long it will be offline, not how it will be offline. I'm sorry, but I was asking how long the downtime will be.

Hopefully BA's downtime will be under 15 minutes if all goes well. You might find that the DNS change is the biggest threat and takes the longest however.

There is gonna be a new server.

Topic Locked

Unlocked for additional information.

The new server isn't online, so I have un-cancelled the current server and paid for it for another month. I really didn't want to have to, but thats what I've had to do to stop BA from going offline and risking overloading the home server's connection.

I'll keep you updated with progress on the new server. I might wait on the new server for another month or so until the new OVH site is up and running properly.

As it stands I'm £48 down now because I've already sent payment for the new server. Isn't it a good job its Christmas eh? :P

More info to follow as soon as I have it.

Why would I want to use your server when:

1. I have my own, and if you'd bothered to read the thread you'd realise that.
2. Your reliability is about as good as a plumbers estimate.
3. I have 2 other servers at my disposal to use if needed.

To be honest, your server is too slow and unreliable to host BA :(
I think if it came to it, im sure andy could find a commercial server from someone else that had a garanteed uptime at least...
