    APUG Possible Server Move (problems seem to be returning)

    Hi All,

    We were good for a day or so but performance issues seem to be returning. I am no longer able to trust this current host. I am going to order a dedicated server at another host and work to get us on that as soon as possible. If anything it will rule out a server issue. It's going to be painful but I'll see if I can get this done in a way to reduce any down time.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    ****UPDATE****

    Getting closer. The new server is up and running but we are not migrated just yet. I am working with vBulletin support to ensure we have optimal settings and applications on the server. I'll keep you posted.

    Sean;

    This is not free. I would like to appeal to all APUG members and subscribers to up their donations to APUG ORG. Please guys. Don't sit back and let this go by. Sean could use all the help we can give.

    Good call Ron,

    I just sent a tiny bit via paypal as a gift (legitimately!) and in $AU, because that's an even better exchange rate!!

    Heartily agree.

    I've always overpaid my subscriptions figuring it would help Sean cover the service - and himself - for those subscribers who may have found themselves in a position to only pay the minimum. We can all see the problems the system is going through right now. If Sean says the word, I'm willing to donate additional funds to help cover this unexpected emergency. I would hope others feel the same way.

    Thanks guys, this has really been my worst nightmare lately. I have just made contact with a vBulletin expert who makes a living by servicing big board systems. His resume is extensive and he is well skilled in server issues, optimization, builds etc. The plan is to hire him to examine the current situation, then we'll take it from there and do whatever is required. I'll keep you posted of course.

    Outstanding post PE! I was thinking of starting a "Give Sean a Pat on the Back" gift fund myself (for all those paid up subscribers). If your not a subscriber, consider how much enjoyment this site yields and become a sub (see up top 'Support Us!')!

    Just sent a PayPal gift to him for being such a great leader. Recovering this site in less than three hours on Monday was amazing, his dedication and communication are stellar.

    Sean -Hope you can some day get out and use that new G2!

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Sounds worth a try. I'll disable it for a bit and see..

    Hi all, new server is ordered. Should be ready in a day or two. Recent donations have certainly helped in this regards. Thanks so much. I'll keep everyone posted.
