    Server move complete

    posted by Dark0ne Site News
    Welcome back! If you're reading this message then you're browsing The Elder Scrolls Nexus at its new home on a new server. I pulled both TESNexus, FO3Nexus and the forums down at 14:20 GMT and as of 17:00 GMT the site is back up and operational, an hour earlier than expected. Thank you for your patience while the site was unavailable.

    There are still a few issues to iron out in regards to the name servers the domains use that might mean over the next few days you get limbo'd about between the old and new server. If this happens you'll get sent to the "We'll be back soon!" page so that you know that you're looking at the old server and not the new server. These are typical teething issues of any server move and should sort themselves out between 12 and 72 hours.

    As the Nexus sites are now on new servers there might be a few glitches and slow-downs. If you see error messages anywhere on the site please report them via the contact form on the site or on the forums; there's a big chance I won't have noticed the error message and reporting it will speed up the fixing process. In regards to site slow-downs this is something that gets fixed over time as I monitor the server loads and gradually tweak the server configuration files to suit the changing environment.

    So please remain vigilant to error messages and remain patient if the site becomes unresponsive. The server configuration files are highly specialised to my sites and take time to get right, especially when the server hardware and software has changed.

    Lastly let me once again thank the supports of TESNexus and FO3Nexus whose monetary contributions help to keep this site not only running, but fully backed up from disaster.
