    yes, our server kicks ass.... but we're getting an even better one. Basically, switching companies.

    our current server:

    Dual 2.4GB Xeon
    (2) 73GB SCSI Drives
    2GB Ram
    1 IP
    1.7TB transfer
    No Backup solutions
    No Manage Server solutions

    our new one:

    Dual 2.8GB Xeon
    (2) 80GB SATA Drives
    2GB Ram
    11 IP Block
    2TB transfer
    40GB tape back-up space on Veritas backup system.
    Manage Service, they apply upgrades and patches to the OS.


    so basically, we are getting a better server, most space/ x-fer, and all that, and its roughly the same price.

    Looks like we'll be getting it this week, before our next month bill comes in, and move over to the new server.

    I EXPECT ZERO interruptions of service- maybe 5 min or so while I move the DB to the new server. after that, both will serve files until all dns settings have udated for everyone.

    Server has just been purchased. Sites will be moved within the next 4-5 days, no downtime anticipated.

    to add....

    The server is home to:
    HondaSwap
    HondaShowOff
    FordShowOff
    AccordWagonClub
    and I'm guessing AutoShowOff when it's up

    we shouldn't, however about a year ago, b upgraded the board, something screwed up, and all posts were lost. Another time it for some reason just deleted a ton of posts between a certian time period.

    while upgrading the board i fucked it up.

    we're moving servers. all that is going to change is the linux path... /user/var/home/hondaswap/ directory will need to be changed to reflect the new server. other than that, its a simple file transfer
