This topic is mostly intended to keep everyone informed on what is being done while boot-land.net is offline.
You're welcome to post questions or feedback regarding what will be implemented over the next few days, some major changes are planned to take place which should result in faster and cleaner work space for our community.
Some new features will be also be integrated and will be made available as time advances.
For the moment the order of operations is as follow:
[done] - Place the forum in offline mode to prevent changes
[done] - Copy boot-land.net to new location
[done] - propagate DNS with new server location information
[delayed]- clean up the clutter from work folders
[not possible] - attempt to use a fresh version of the forum software
[nearly completed] - install addons (left column, users viewed topic today, thanks mod, visual customization, etc)
[not needed] - install external scripts (portal, newsletter, download system, external registration page)
- install SVN service
- clean up database from inactive members (winter operation)
[on progress]- add back boot-land.net subdomains and email respective owners (password details sent to private email box)
[on progress..] - final checking and clean up
- Presentation to the public.
All is going well at the moment, a lot of care is being taken with backups to ensure nothing gets lost in the process.
The proposed order of operations might change as needed, if something was left out of the list please mention it so that it won't be forgotten!
Thank you for reading!
