Server Moving

This server will be physically moving to a new location this week — causing an interruption of service. I had hoped to avoid the interruption by setting up a new server and slowly migrating data and services to it. Unfortunately, the timing hasn’t worked out for the new server, so we must move this server instead.

All services (email, www, etc) and domains hosted on the server will experience an outage beginning Tuesday afternoon/evening and ranging from several hours to a couple of days, depending on how long it takes the server’s new address to propagate throughout the web.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

A couple of weeks after this move is complete, the new server — faster, more memory, more disk, better backups — should finally be ready to go. Migrating to it should be a much smoother transition than this week’s move.

The server will get moved on Thursday, instead of Tuesday.
