PPRuNe temporary shut down this weekend

Exclamation PPRuNe temporary shut down this weekend

The PPRuNe is moving to a new, more powerful server with dual processors. The new server will allow us to provide a better service to our readers and contributors.

The current server is struggling to cope with the loads being imposed on it only seven months after it was implemented due to the ever increasing number of visitors to this website. With registered membership approaching the 30,000 mark and the number of visitors on a daily basis well over that figure the current server is operating at near full capacity for most of the day and the time has come to upgrade yet again.

During the change over this coming weekend, 31st March and 1st April the service will be unavailable as the domain name is assigned to a new IP address. For some of you it will mean no PPRuNe for maybe only a few hours but for others it may mean nothing for up to 48 hours as the new IP address propogates throughout the worlds domain name servers. I apologise for the inconvenience this may cause some of you but once the new server is accessible I am hoping that you will find that there are less delays accessing pages during peak periods.

Another benefit of upgrading to a more powerful server is that we can now try out newer versions of the forums software as well as other brands. My aim is to continue to provide the best professional pilots website and forums as PPRuNe continues to grow from strength to strength.

Once again I apologise for any inconvenience caused during the upgrade and hope that you will all bear with me until the service is back up and running again.

Danny,

Can I make a suggestion?

When you make the DNS change put a re-direct page up on the "old" DNS entry that says "you're being teleported to the new site" (you will have to use the IP number of the server as the name won't resolute properly) - therefore none of us will be without our dose of PPRuNe.

Swashplate,

You did make me laugh!!

Where did I put those gardening tools a couple of years ago? I'll have to be careful, there's probably lions and tigers out there now.

Keep up the good work Captain!

By the way does anybody know where its best to gost a domain, that is to get storage space and a .com! I'm looking for a place to store the homepage of my local flying club. Please e-mail me.

Sorry Ladies and Gentlemen but I don't believe that the server is being changed.

The reason behind this interruption is a ploy devised by Auntie Marge of the Agony Aunt forum to assist poor Workforce to finally break a developing habit See thread

http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/For...ML/000111.html

However if this action cures the affliction this person suffers from then let it be so. Maybe it will also assist a few other tortured souls who frequent this web site


Have a good weekend all

It may be a bit late , but you could get your sysadmin to change the ttl for dns caching. Then we could all be ppruning within the hour
UTOPIA!
