    Cricket Web Server Move - Friday 12th July 2006: 11:30am New Zealand Time

    We are moving servers with our hosting provider on Wednesday 12th July 2006 from 11:30am New Zealand Time. This page lists the time in your part of the world at 11:30am New Zealand time.

    It is expected that the move will take 1-2 hours and there will be roughly four hours of downtime as you get re-directed to the IP Address for the new server.

    Our server will be based in Atlanta rather than the current one which is in Texas and there are the following advantages which is quoted straight from our hosting provider:

    We'll be running on shiny new hardware with dual dual-core Opteron 270's (vs the current dual Xeon 2.8Ghz's), 4GB of RAM in every system (with capacity for more), and faster RAID 10 arrays (vs the current RAID 5 arrays). You'll be running on Virtuozzo 3.0, which is the latest and greatest version of the software and includes *major* improvements in speed, reliability, and features.
    If you have any question you are welcome to email me (james.nixon@cricketweb.net), contact me on MSN (nixonja@hotmail.com) or Google Talk (cricketweb@gmail.com).

    Stop the Press!

    Turns out there's a few problems with the new server that has been ordered. A diagnostic check is going to be done on the server tomorrow US time.

    The server move will still go ahead but is likely to be Friday or Saturday this week now.

    The RAM has been swapped out of the server, and we're all set to go again.

    The server move will now happen Friday 14th July 2006 from 11:30am New Zealand Time. Same details apply as in my original post.

    James, forum.cricketweb.net(my bookmark) is not working for me at the moment, the link from the main site doens't work for me either( i think that is also forum.cricketweb.net). I can access through cricketweb.net/forum. is this related to the server move or am i missing something, i seem to remember this happening once before.

    For the record it diverts me to a page about cricket web blogs

    If you know of someone having problems, ask them to try the following:

    1) Clear out the browser cache and force a reload and they should be able to see it.
    2) Have them try a different browser.
    3) IE is pretty bad about not asking for new dns, it just uses what it did last time.
    4) Also have them open a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns

    I don't know if it's just me, but has anyone else had issues with CW in the last three days?

    For me, on a regular basis it's been loading very slowly or not loading at all. Not sure if it's an issue with the new server or a problem on my end, but i'm not experiencing these problems with any other sites.

    It's been like that for me as well, the site has barely been responding at all today. Often the pages simply won't load, or I get sent to the database error page. I don't know if it's because of the new server or not but I assume it is - this site says the average load time is 9.3 seconds, which seems rather high.
