Starting this Friday after the normal Invasions have started on Main, I will be taking down Test for several days for upgrades and moving to a new machine. It will be up & down for a while during that timeframe. This does include the EU Proxy as well.

Once Test is up and stays up, then the Forums will be taken down for a day or so for similar treatment.

PS this is also related to the work so OL can support the Wiki project and several steps related to replacing the Test & Forums server to also handle the Wiki without slowing even during major Test processing.

The new server seems to be working well and appears to be handling all it needs to except the Forums, which wont be moved until were almost done. Z's even run several of his MapAudits and has been very happy with the results and the processing speed. The speed boost of that is a nice side effect of the upgrade to handle the Wiki better.

We're currently running a long test to make sure nothing unusual pops up. It should be more stable now then the last couple days, but updates from Z & IM's may still require the normal types of restarts that Test normally has.

The forums will be going offline shortly so I can make a FULL copy of them across to the new server! They may be unstable for a while as I play with the VM on the new machine.

Forums are up and currently being tested on the New Server!

At this time, all the testing has been completed and no additional changes will be needed.
