Server Hosting Change

Postby Teresa » August 24th, 2016, 2:04 pm

I have just received notice that our hosting provider has sold the hosting platform. The change will be occurring over the next few weeks, starting today.

This should NOT cause any downtime.

But...

If you see anything weird, or have any problems, please send me a message or an email and give me as specific a description as possible.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

No, it strictly a change to the host. The forum should NOT be affected. The only thing that might happen is it would be unavailable as they change the name servers to point to the new location. I believe they are working on it so all changes will be in the background and we should not notice.

So did the host change mess up the images in the signatures? I tried to update my challenges dates and then I get a message that says Image Dimensions Cannot be Defined.

Is this just in the signatures, or we having trouble with links to images elsewhere?

I am checking the settings on the backend.

OK - I took out the limits for now. Which means nothing is checking to make sure the images are not too big, or there are not too many. Please try again, and let me know if that works. I will leave the limits turned off as long as we don't start having huge signatures.

Taking out the image limits worked! I didn't have any issues posting images to the forum prior, just the issue with images in signatures.

Great. :)

I will work on putting them back in later on - right now I will leave them out.
