Server Transfer

Two announcements within two days. You didn't think it possible, did you? Well, it happened.

Anyway, VNDB will be moving to a new server somewhere today or tomorrow. New specs are:
CPU: Intel Xeon CPU E3-1225 V2 @ 3.20GHz
RAM: 16GB
HDD: 2x2TB in RAID1
BW: Lots. (Unlimited 250 MBit/s apparently)
In particular, we'll be moving to a E3-SAT-1 server at OVH. Old server specs can be found at t2934.

Reason for this transfer isn't so much that we needed a new hardware upgrade, but more because I was unhappy with the software configuration of the old server and wanted to do a complete OS reinstall. But since an OS reinstall comes with significant downtime and forces me to rush, I decided to instead get a new server and transfer stuff at my own pace.

I'll post any progress updates in this thread while we're moving. I dont expect much - if any - downtime, but it's possible that login will be disabled for a while.

UPDATE#1: I'll disable login in the next few minutes and then start the transfer. You won't be able to use your account until the transfer is done and your DNS has been updated.

UPDATE#2: Transfer done. If you're seeing this message it means your DNS has updated and you're connected to the new server.Last modified on 2014-10-02 at 09:56

Stop lying. It didn't happen.

Nice server, btw.

Just wondering do you do it by hand or some kind of provision tool like docker

I probably wouldn't take any free/special offers anyway. Would feel wrong, too, since I consider the server more of a personal dedicated PC and use it for a bunch of other stuff besides VNDB.

Still manually. Every time I look into docker or other linux containers I see more questions than answers. I should probably take some time to really get into that stuff.

Two...
