That Wasn’t Much Fun

Things seem to be back to normal after about 22 hours of downtime.  The course of true love and server moves never goes smoothly, but it seems to be done.

Indeed it wasn’t much fun. I didn’t think “four to eight hours” sounded reasonable, but I had unreasonable hopes anyway. At least I’m not selling T-shirts on my blog, so I didn’t lose any money…

Actually, when I read about the pick-up at a second location and realized they weren’t just moving their servers, but combining them, I had a gut feeling that this wouldn’t be nice.

The bit about the extra time in the cabling confirmed my feeling – they were re-configuring as well as moving, and upgrading PhP to version 5…there was no way this wasn’t going to draw blood.

Now, that reminds me of Y2K. Of course, that was about 7 years ago:)

22 hours is a pretty long downtime, but it happens. I guess no problems since?

Things seem to working properly and this should eliminate the unscheduled outages we had been experiencing because of the former structure, OWL.

When things came back, everything was intact, so it was successful from that stand point.
