    Well, it looks we're currently outgrowing our current VPS, which means, we need to get a stronger VPS, to help us out. I haven't ordered the new server quite yet, but I'll be doing that soon - which means, once we start the transferring progress, VPL will have a "down message" for the forums, which means, you won't be able to browse the forums, messages, or anything because the whole forum will be offline.

    This is also the main reason why the site is "hiccuping" and having "connection times out", as well as lag problems.
    We've upgraded to a new VPS, its a lot more powerful than our old one.

    No downtime at all, we're now on the new server.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    Is this expected to happen today, within the week, or later than that?

    Re: Server move coming soon

    Hopefully before the weekend - so it might be tomorrow, but we'll see how this server performs in the next day, to see if upgrading is our best option.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    You're welcome, and I do too - which is why I'm making sure the Host can handle everything - in regards to changing our DNS settings, so the downtime isn't so long.

    So I'll be sure to that as well.

    I'm looking forward to the server move, I've been lagging a bit the past few days. so this will boost my connection a bit.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    @cpvr My bad. :p For some reason the skin on the iPad was all wonky today. I think it was the internet I was using though.. Either way, I couldn't see it because of it. Sorry! :)

    Re: Server move coming soon

    I hope it won't take too long. I tend to miss my buddies easily and I might start to bite my nails again..

    So yeah, I'll miss you guys once the server move begins!! D':

    Re: Server move coming soon

    @vanillaeclairvanillaeclair Yeah, same here. I think I am going to go through VPL withdrawals. D: At least we could hit the ground running when we get back with lightning fast speeds. It'll really peak our activity, I think.

    You're welcome. I'm just hoping we can last a long time on the new one, if not we'll just upgrade again.:style
