    tMP Server Upgrade tonight

    OK, the time has come yet again to upgrade the tMP Dedicated Server. I am aware despite general performance improvements, we have been experiencing a few teething troubles since we moved across to our dedicated server. Essentially, because we are so busy, we need a more powerful machine and as such I have purchased an owned server specifically for tMP that has a superb specification.

    I am hoping to do the server upgrade later this evening/tonight but unfortunately this time we will need to close tMP for a few hours while we do so.

    This will mean that when you next come back online you should see an immediate performance improvement from our dual-core, 2GB RAM, super dooper mega server... well that's the theory anyway!!!

    I'll update this thread just as we're going offline. Wish us luck.

    Busy preparing files and removing older, unused stuff as we are moving datacenter this time and files will need to be moved across the internet and not just across an internal network - which is what we did when we moved from a shared plan to our 1st dedicated server.

    This is still dedicated, but I own the machine, which is a much higher spec'ed machine that the previous dedicated machine.

    Fingers crossed...

    All done, thankfully.

    tMP now residing on our new owned super-dooper machine. Please let me know if you see a performance improvement.

    To correct things like "rehearse in scunthorpe" for instance, not referring to anyone's posts if that's why you're offended Philip!

    Edit: and it obviously is!

    You would have been quite justified, actually! :D

    It's too hot here!

    (By the way I was recently prohibited from logging onto 4barsrest from a public computer, as they had found 'spanking' in the text. Presumably 'spanking new cornet' or something!)

    Seems quite a bit better from my end, John. Well done.
