Server Migration
« on: July 22, 2017, 01:27:22 PM »
Hi everyone,

This is to let you all know that Exilian will be migrating server in the next few days. Server migrations are never a fun part of running a website, but we've got to a point where our current hosts just aren't giving us the functionality Exilian needs at a price we can reasonably afford. As such, we're moving over to a new hosting company for our main board hosting. As such, there may be some significant downtime over the next 3-5 days as domain servers re-point to the new host and content is moved over. Thanks for your patience during this time - once it's done we'll be able to get back to work on some more significant upgrades to site function that we're currently unable to achieve.

Best wishes,

Jubal (Megadux)

Please note particularly that anything posted to the site between Monday morning (24 July) and later in the week might not be transferred. If you have any significant announcements or complex posts, we recommend you post them before Monday, or leave them until we've confirmed that the transfer is complete and successful.
