Moving
« on: July 03, 2017, 16:34:04 PM »
Guys,

I am moving the site to a new host that's more managed as I can not dedicate the backend time needed anymore, the time spent in there is stopping me using the site as a fan.

There maybe down time as I do this so please be aware.

The pricing is £10/$12 a month instead of the current £25/$33 a month.

Massive saving.

Nothing else should change.

Sounds like a win-win.  More managed on the back-end and cheaper.

Yes, although its not dedicated server space it should be fit for our purpose.

As for the move, not sure yet. I'll keep you all posted.

OK, good.  Maybe you need to send an email notifying everyone of this so people are aware should they try to come back and not be able to connect.

Cracking idea pal.

Then we can look at migrating to wordpress for the frontend.

Looks that way.  We lost the theme but the site is online.  :)

Yes the designer of that theme has closed his support website so unless I can figure it out then we need to work on this one.

I'm having a problem. I'm at work and I was on the site on my computer and it was working but then I got an error and I can't get back on. Using my phone now but every time I try on the computer I get "Your connection to this server has been blocked in the server's firewall." Then it says my IP address has been blocked and I need to contact the server owner. Help?

Strange. Let's keep an eye on this.
