    Exclamation Framers Corner 2017 Upgrade

    In the near future, Framers Corner will be physically moving to a different server within the same data center. In short, we're moving to a new server that has been tested to be up to 1200% faster. It's a distributed, redundant, highly available, self-healing SSD (solid state drive) based server.

    You don't have to do anything, but expect that there could be 1-3 hours of downtime when this change happens. We don't expect any problems, and wont lose any posts. The forum should look exactly the same afterwards, but will be even faster.

    There is a 50/50 possibility that you may have to log in again, after this change happens. If so, please make a note of your user name and password.

    We will post an exact date and time when we have confirmation with the engineers at the data center, but it will be between 8/25 - 9/15. (probably at the earlier end of that scale)

    We just want to give a heads up in case you visit in the near future and the system is temporarily down. If that happens, it will be back within the hour

    Best regards
    Mike for the FC support team

    Did we move to the new server yet? Just curious.

    Our conversion to the new server was scheduled for tonight, but has been postponed until the 23rd. There were some problems with one of the other conversions, which set everything back a week. Ours will be the last one to be upgraded, before the plug is pulled on this server at the end of the month.

    The servers that have already been upgraded are seeing tremendous performance. (not that this server has been slow at all)

    I'll update as we get closer. It is scheduled for 11pm EST-4am the next morning, so most likely you won't even notice.

    Mike

    Re: Framers Corner 2017 Upgrade

    Framer's corner is getting an upgrade on the evening of Saturday 9/23, starting at 9:30pm EST. We expect to be down for about 6 hours, while all files are transferred to a new server. If you visit during that time, the system will not be available.


    Sorry in advance, and thanks for being part of FC!

    The migration to the new server is complete, and all is well, ahead of schedule.
