Title: DOOMSDAY!!
Post by: YaBB Master (Colin) on April 13, 2023, 10:42:55 PM
The company that owns the data centre that contains this server has gone bankrupt. It will go off air in five days.

I will try to switch things, but there will be glitches. TAW will be back, but it may not look like it for a time.

Good luck!

If ever a server needed a clear out, it's this one, but four days is tight.
It runs a backup migration every Friday, so that's a start.

Thanks Colin!

Yes, but this server is a relic, running outdated software. One day I'll configure something new.

In case anybody wonders, TAW and other sites are hosted on a HP ProLiant MicroServer N55. I has four solid state RAID drives, a better processor and running BlueOnyx. It's old.

Thanks Colin. Most of what you have written seems like a foreign language to me but I am very grateful for your efforts. I have often taken lots of information from this site as well as very occasionally putting in my tuppence worth.
