    Hi All,

    Very sorry about the recent outages regarding the server move. Much more work was done on this and a custom migration script has been supplied to us by the Virtualmin techs. Just to be SURE it works this time, I ran through a test migration of APUG earlier today (this did not require an outage as I used the APUG backup taken a few days ago). The migration and testing went well, I was able to see and use APUG on the new server without issue. The move later tonight will be identical to this testing, which is essentially backing up the site so we have a fresh backup, transferring the files to the new server, running the migration script.

    Thanks!
    Sean

    I keep hoping that one of these changes will stop all my hospital screens being 10 screen wides wide, with 8 pages of blank grey and one little arrow forward ( or page number after page 2) at the bottom of the 10 th width.
    No such luck.
