    We’re in the process of moving the site to a faster, more secure server. Status updates of the move will be posted here as they occur. We’re currently working on setting up a staging site on the new server. We will then test for functionality and address any issues that may arise. Once everything is running smoothly, we’ll take the site from staging to live and transfer the domain name to use the new server. There may be some downtime during this final stage.

    If you notice anything not working correctly after the move takes place please use this thread to report it.

    The site is scheduled for maintenance as part of the migration process on Wednesday March 16th at 1:00 AM Eastern Time. The new hosting company has been running into difficulties with the transfer because of the size of the database and the limitations our current hosting provider has in place. I apologize for the inconvenience and the amount of time it’s taking to complete the migration. Hopefully things will proceed more smoothly and quickly from here on out.

    • #69923

    The site will be going into maintenance around midnight tonight in order to perform a database syncronization test with the new server. The procedure shouldn’t last more than 20 minutes.

    Hey @sheridan, will we lose points when the server switch happens? Also, is there a risk of losing content? Thanks!

    • #70775

      Sheridan
      Participant

      @jessica before the switch to the new server happens, we will synchronize the database so you shouldn’t lose any of your points or content. That’s what the maintenance was for tonight, to test whether the database is synchronizing correctly.

    After moving the site over to the new server we ran into several configuration issues that need to be addressed, so we had to revert back to the old server for now. Unfortunately several posts were made on the new server before the errors where noticed. I’m very sorry for the inconvenience but those posts don’t exist on the current server and will need to be re-posted to the site.

    I’m sorry but the latest migration attempt was also unsuccessful. I didn’t feel comfortable about making the switch without fixing several issues first. For those using the Jetpack plugin you will have to reconnect it to WordPress.com to get it working again.

    • #73457

      luciaanna

      @sheridan Yes, as I use the Jetpack plugin, I have just reconnected it to WordPress to get it working again.

    Jetpack will need to be reconnected to your WordPress.com in order to get it working again on your blogs. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    The final stage of the site migration will begin tonight 4/6 at around 10pm CST. We will try to keep the site available to visitors as much as possible, but members will not be able to log in until the migration is complete and all of the issues have been dealt with. We’re hoping it will take less then 24 hours, but if we run into problems it could be a few days before the site is fully operational again.

  • #75564

    Sheridan
    Participant

    I’m sorry that it took longer than expected, but the site has now been moved to the new server. There are still some issues that need to be worked on like some images in activity feeds are not displaying, but we feel like those issues can be taken care of over time. We’ll also be working on further optimizing the site to improve page speed performance. Please report any additional issues you may find here.

    I am happy that the site is back, but I have to report this issue, as per your suggestion @sheridan.

    On April 7th, 2016 at 1,37 AM (Italian time) my points were 7738.

    When I logged in this morning (April 10) my points were 7648. = – 90 points

    Considering that this morning I got

    . 2 points for logging

    Also I got, as per my history

    . 4 points for visitors on April 9
    . 10 points for visitors on April 8
    ————————————
    Total: 16 points

    90 Points – 16 points = 74 points are now missing.

    @sheridan, could you please check? Thanks in advance.

    If you feel like you’re missing points after the migration. Please use the contact us page to report it and I’ll look into it within the next couple of days.

    Also for everyone using Jetpack you will have to reconnect it to WordPress.com to get it working correctly again. Please let me know if you’re having issues with connecting it.

    @sheridan – I noticed ‘blog token not found’ in my comment boxes. You’ll see what I mean here… https://blogjob.com/ideasforoutdoorliving/easy-way-clean-rusty-grill-grates/

    Also, I brought this up in another thread, but ads are covering ads here and there. They are sometimes over my Amazon ads and other times they’re your ads over your other ads.

    Maybe you’re currently working on these issues, but I wanted to bring them to your attention in case you weren’t aware.

  • #81320

    @kimdalessandro The comment error was being caused by the Jetpack commenting module. I have disable it across all the blogs and I have removed the ads in question.

    What about this several hours ago? I have made around 20 comment updates on my friends’ profile. Those comments have been reflected in their respective walls, but the points earned from such comments haven’t been reflected in my outstanding points. What I did is to shift to the forums to comment and to react. And those activities I have made were all updated to my balance points. Any point of clarification to this @sheridan?
