New Inkbunny server! Long downtime expected for changeover

Thanks to a whole pile of much-appreciated donations, we're able to afford a shiny new server!

As we're moving the whole site from one server to another, we're expecting downtime of several hours, possibly up to a whole day, starting approximately 24 hrs from the time this journal was posted.

Once the new server is online and the site has been moved over, it may take a further hour or two for it to become available to all users worldwide due to DNS propagation.

Be sure to follow Inkbunny on Twitter now so you can see exactly when we come back online, and keep up to date with any unexpected delays.

More server details and donation drive results will be announced after the migration is complete.

Thanks

They'll launch an IRC server, and then they'll /kill whatever is 0.0.0.0...

We'll keep the old server and data around for weeks, just to be sure. And we have onsite and offsite backups! :P

I have always hated server migration. So muc that can go wrong and cause longer waits for completion. I hope all goes well.

Yeah, it should take 30 minutes or less. But I have allowed 24 hrs for unforeseen explosions.

Having SSDs for the database makes me feel happy inside. Though consider upgrading the database capacity! 64GB is not enough!
starling
4 years, 11 months ago
We only use 11GB at the moment so it's plenty of room for now :D
TechKat

Seriously? 11GB? Wow. Even I never made that much data. Do you mind if I ask what engine you're using? MySQL? MariaDB? SQLLite?

Postgresql, as it has superior capability to handle stupidly large tables (and a bunch of other rad features) :D
