I have had a brand new dedicated server up and running for 2 or 3 weeks now but have been procrastinating getting it live. Sorry! I just haven’t been sure about how to do it with minimum disruption.
This server has very considerably more capacity in terms of processing power, memory, etc than the current one and you should notice a significant difference.
The new server is currently at http://new.sotawatch.org with an old data set.
I think I will get the data up-to-date and then put a notice on the old one to the effect that the new one should be used. Then I will change the DNS on http://www.sotawatch.org . After about 24/28 hours this will have fully propogated so that ‘www’ will point to the new server and the old one will be cut loose.
I’ll keep this thread up to date as I make the changes.
