New Web Server Installation Tonight
Now at T minus 56 minutes for the new web server installation to begin. We’ll be getting another 2.4GHz dual quad machine with HT, 2 1TB drives and 12GB of RAM — the same type of server we now have for the database — replacing our four-year old current server.
I’ll be putting the site in maintenance mode while we copy things over and test to make sure everything’s there, at about 6 pm Pacific if we start as planned. Hopefully it won’t take too long - the database server took all night because we had to re-import 9 gigabytes of data. This should be a much quicker process.
