    OptiBoard Server Move

    OptiBoard will be moved to a newer, more powerful server today. The migration is scheduled to begin around 5:00pm PDT. I will close the forums about an hour or two before to make backups and prepare fore the move. Then after the migration I will have to check things out to make sure everything was moved and is working correctly. If all goes well the site should be down for no more than a few hours. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Update: The server guys were not able to finish the migration today. It is now scheduled for tomorrow morning.

    Update: The new server is finally ready. I will be closing OptiBoard at around 10:00am Pacific time so they can move the database over. They estimate this will take about an hour, but from my experience this is likely going to take much longer. I will do everything I can to minimize the downtime and get OptiBoard back up as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    The server migration is done (finally.)

    There are still some issues that need to be resolved. If you have any errors or run into problems, please PM me with the error message and what you were doing. Thanks!

    FYI, there is a problem with the search index. I have cleared it out and am rebuilding it now. Because there are almost a half a million posts, this is likely to take the rest of the day and all night. Sorry for any inconvenience.
