    All,

    In order to resolve the issues the site is having, the WSC Site will be closed for maintenance and migration of hosting supplier from 11pm EST on 19th April 2013. This downtime will be variable but is not expected to exceed 4 hours.

    Once work is completed, this should resolve the problems detailed in this post and provide for increased scalability should similar issues rear their head again.

    My best,

    BTW, which hosting provider did you guys decide on? I'm currently looking at alternatives for my hosting and any additional options I can add to the list would be appreciated.

    DreamHost - I already used them for my private hosting, and they offer excellent support for what I'm doing/done with WSC.

    Unfortunately, it's going to be such a streamlined process that it would be more boring than ever. So, yes, I will stream it :p

    Cool, nice to see the initiative for improvement. Good luck with the change.

    I only just joined the forum and the only thing that bothered me (though it happens on pretty much every forum) is that the signup process seems to have a big problem with recognizing custom e-mail addresses or something. As soon as you don't use a gmail address it takes ages before you receive any mails. I used the resend confirmation option but that mail never even arrived. After that I changed it to my gmail and it was send instantly.

    Edit: I spoke too soon haha. The second confirmation mail just arrived.

    Completely unrelated per say, but the twitter message made it sound like the maintenance will take a month :)

    Well, if I'm unlucky.... :p Just that after two years of no maintenance, this month has had two instances of it!

    Unfortunately the migration process failed at the export stage - despite being left to run for over 7 hours. I will be rescheduling for this evening (around 9pm EST) and performing the export manually.

    :eek: Oh, no! I imagine that has to be pretty frustrating. I'm sorry. Good luck with doing things manually tonight! *cheers Zap on*

    On the upside though this will make a way better stream!

    So, 12hrs later and many cups of tea later.... we're back online with the new host! It's currently under a shared hosting plan still but upgrade to a VPS service will be relatively quick and painless should it come down to it.

    Please, let me know if you see any performance issues or strange bugs here on this thread. I'll get to them when I come round to consciousness again.

    If you need me... I'll be asleep!
