SERVER UPGRADE COMPLETE

Postby Saunders » Mon Apr 06, 2009 11:22 pm

Folks. We've migrated from an ancient, archaic RedHat 7.1 server installation to a brand spankin' new Fedora 10 Core installation.

Many of the underlying systems have been upgraded, including the database management system, the web server, our version of PHP, etc.

IF YOU NOTICE ANY BUGS OR INSTABILITY, EMAIL ME!

There are more upgrades to come - for example, I can now finally upgrade us to phpBB3 and a newer version of WordPress. But these things couldn't be done without getting the foundation rebuilt.

These further upgrades should be possible to do while the server's running, instead of me having to bring it down for a day. Since they're packages and not the underlying fundamentals.

Now. I think I have some well-earned sleep in my near future...
