switching hosts

wheat's picture

I got an email today from our current host (mediatemple.net) saying that our database server requirements are too much for the current hosting plan (gridserver lite). They kindly offered to automatically upgrade my account to one they thought would be more appropriate, and kindly offered to tack on an extra $20/mo. for the service.

That's it for me. I'm moving everything to my other host (dreamhost.com). I've had two hosts running for a while now. jamesnotjim.com is on Dreamhost. Everything else (wheatdesign.com, bassfaq.com, bassplaying.com, etc.) is currently hosted at mediatemple, but that's about to change. I'm going to move everything over to dreamhost and give them a try. If they suck, I'll try something else.

I also want to upgrade drupal. But I have to make sure everything is working on the new host first. Expect some outages and other weirdness. If you need to contact me, try wheatbread at gmail dot com.

DNS updates might take a day

DNS updates might take a day or two. On my end, it has already updated. This is my first attempt at posting now that we're on the new server. So, if you see this comment, your DNS should have already updated and all should be well.

Be sure to file bug reports for any odd behavior. I already squashed one bug (one that kept requiring me to log in with each new page visit). That turns out to be a PHP 5.2.x bug (not a Drupal bug). So now we're rolling with PHP 4.4.7.

It all seems pretty good so far, I had a bit of trouble logging in this morning but that might have been during change over.

No what I ment was that I caouldn't even get on the wepsite at all, and then when finally did get on if went funny a few times.
No prob now though.

would the server changes be the reason...

that I can't access the bassbook?
I can see the intro page, but if I try to get into any of the lessons, it says this page does not exist please contact the moderator to report a problem(or something of that sort)

I forgot to renew

I forgot to renew wheatsbassbook.com and someone stole it out from under me and turned it into a link trap. So I've registered wheatsbassbook.org and wheatsbassbook.net until I can manage to get my domain back, if that's even possible.

And I was hoping you were going to be supplying us all with free cases of Wheats "Bass 'N' Beer " - for those that love the buzz of the low end.

Ohh well, maybe another time. ;)
