On June 1st posting will have some interrupts while we transfer site information from one location to another. As apposed to the site reformat that happened earlier this year(>>9095), there should not be a half a day long downtime.

Since Kissu is in the last 6 months of it's 4 year server lease our hosts are changing and our server hardware is being upgraded.

Switching from a VPS provider to a Cloud provider.
3X the cost with 3.2X the storage, 2X the RAM and a better CPU (though our former host never gave any details on what they use). Formerly our servers were chosen for being the cheapest option. Currently the focus is on increasing the site's performance and fine tuning our hardware to what makes posting the fastest.
The most important thing of note is that the increase in storage space will resolve an issue with post times that I was working around. Uploading files directly to luna will cease to be a thing(at least until I rework the algorithm).

In addition to the above, but not effecting your posting quality in any way:
A separate VPS server will be purchased and will be uploaded with full backups every 24hr. This ensures that suspensions from server hosts or hardware failure will only ever roll us back a day.

Services such as 4taba, theatre.kissu, file-url-upload and luna.kissu will continue to exist in the same manner as they have been.

which provider and what are exactly the specs? i'm wondering how they compare to contabo (have had no issues, used them for 2 years+)

gonna eat the data

Started the server config. When I'm done verifying that posting works I'll switch the site to point to the new location and disable posting on the current one.

There will be a few hours where thumbnails and files don't display while I move them over.

Didn't go with Contabo because they provide too much for a low cost. It's a pretty standard ~12$ server

thumbnails being migrated over or something
(I'm just posting stuff as he works)

this thumb shouldn't actually exist... it's quite weird doing a server change

 No.9907

nvm, he posted it after the IPs switched.

Anyways, I'm doing a slow recovery of thumbnails. Some full images might also be 404 and I'll get to those after

As a result of changes between the CPU we've gone from 1.8GHz to 3.7GHz
That's the model values, but in reality some of that just vanishes into thin air.

I'm feeling and observing that a lot of site operations are far faster. I'm quite happy with the upgrade.

I'm doing a move of all the media files from the old server into the new one, just to make sure that nothing is missing

Full site backups are enabled. Every 24/hr the site's data is written to backups stored on a different provider.
Luna is currently frozen and can't be uploaded to so those are stored on my desktop.

This will resolve all issues relating to server losses.
