    Have moved to a fully dedicated server

    Hello all,

    I an emergency fashion I decided it's time to move us to a fully dedicated server. I have learned that with sites like this you can come across BIG problems, and when you have problems you need full control to resolve them. With our own server we will not simply just live on a pre-configured webserver, we'll be able to configure our own server in the best possible way for our specific needs. I don't know yet if the new server will resolve the issues we had on the old server. We will have to wait and see..

    I am glad there will be more control. Any more blackouts and I might actually get some work done.

    I hope going to the new server will not over tax Sean. He does have a life, family and a real job too. Good work tho Sean, and thanks for keeping out little asylum running.

    It shouldn't be too bad Eric. I am with the same host and the server is fully managed, meaning they maintain it, upgrade the core software, repair any hardware faults, etc. There is more cost involved, but with our sponsors and the recent increase in subscribers we're covered pretty good..

    I look after our website at work and it's been a lot easier since I moved ours to a dedicated server. For example, if you need to upgrade php then you can do it straight away without waiting for the hosting company to do it. But I certainly didn't move ours in a day! Well done, that was fast.

    Mike
