You folks are welcome. It's what I do to give back to the hobby.

Thanks to a delivery from Chris, new hood springs have been media blaster, painted black, and installed. I also bought some of that WD-40 Spray Dry Lube (Teflon?), and gave the hinges as quick spray. Between that and the new to me springs, the hood opens and closes effortlessly now. Night and day. I may have to give the door and trunk hinges a good spray as well.

At least this time it went much smoother as I wasn't having to rewrite half the website to make it work again. It was really a lump move and then fix all the domain pointers and wait for everything to propagate.

All and all it was probably only offline for about 4-5 hours.

The website should be back up and running on the new server. Let me know if you see any new oddities.

Thanks!

I have all the files transfered, going to finish the final settings and the redirect the URL to the new IP hopefully tomorrow hopefully. So look for the website to perhaps be unable at that time until all the changes propogate.

On the day I started to set up a new server, they finally fixed the stability issue with the current network node. But, that node is slated for replacement, so a move will need to happen anyway. So rather just get it done and get back to better things.

I wish they would have realized that back in January so I could have done this only once!

Luckily this time will go faster as I am not trying to upgrade the entire software package as well.

FYI, starting the migration progress. Trying to get as much as possible pre-configured and copied before I lock this server and start the final move. I'll post more as I get closer, as just moving the raw data takes nearly an entire day.

Just an update, they are still having issue and I may have to just move the website over to a new server stack.

Currently something on the current stack is resetting every 4 hours on the dot and causing the stack to loose network connection which then makes the website appear to go offline to the outside world. Then have to reboot it to get the stack to start routing correctly again. Annoying, but they haven't been able to find the source of the issue, so I may migrate to a new stack to move away from whatever the issue is. So if that turns out to be the case, I'll let you all know, and if the website is down for an extended period (a couple of days at the worst) this is the reason, as they is alot of data to move and migrate.

Thanks and sorry about the troubles.
