Moving to a new server

Postby korexus » Tue Nov 28, 2017 8:07 pm

We've been needing a server upgrade for a little while, and Black Friday offered some decent deals with our hosts. Over the next few days I'll be setting up a new server, and moving everything across. This shouldn't impact anything on the front end, but something will almost certainly go wrong, so I'm letting you know in advance!

Chris.

Thanks. Not nearly done yet. - We have a server, it has our source code on it. Now I'm going through the process of identifying all the other stuff I installed on the current server, finding the equivalent for the new environment, and installing that.

Given my limited time, this could take a while, but at least nothing's broken while I'm doing it...

The databases are all set up, and syncing between the new and old server. I've just done the scary step, which is is updating the DNS server for kaomaris.com. If everything disappears in the next four hours or so, it's because I did that wrong!

That's the theory. The SSL turned out to be tricky, so I took a break over Christmas, and haven't managed to pick it up again yet. Really going to try though!

Ok, I think that's all done. Let me know if you see something that looks wrong.
