Server Move

Post by Shane » Mon Oct 08, 2018 9:58 pm

Some things are a bit out of place, but for the most part everything should be functioning as it was before.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

The transfer did not include any uploaded files, which basically means avatars. Would just need to be reuploaded.

I just posted a few minutes ago, & my avatar seemed fine, unless I just wasn't paying attention.
[Edit: Nope, no problem; it's here.]

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

My avatar seems to be unscathed.

Everything looks fine in mobile.

you can still see avatars if you have them cached but they're not really there

i cleared my cache for this site and nobody had any avatars

Post numbers are back. I did not expect that would be one of the things not working.

I'll pull the plug on the old server in a few hours, but I don't see anything particularly pressing that is missing. Some minor template edits/files that I need to find/upload from my local backup should be about it. Almost everybody, if not everybody, should be on the new server by now (most by late last night for that matter).

Should be no missing posts. Maybe next time.

Kind of a noobie question. I've been looking through the UCP for a while for where to even add my sig and I can't seem to find it. I checked the FAQ and it was like yeah it's in the UCP and I was like cool I've looked everywhere now what? Like trying to find ketchup in the refrigerator and you look for ten minutes and it's behind the milk in the back laying on its side. So, where's the ketchup?
