Server Migration: Phase 2

March 20th, 2009: Filed under  by Alexander Catapang @ 3:04 am

I am currently setting up 2 new servers, to replace 2 older servers that are currently in production. This is part of my host’s migration efforts. I don’t really have a choice, so I am forced to do all these unnecessary work, and with short notice at that.

Anyway, I am not done setting up everything on the 2 servers yet. I’ve been working on 1 server the last couple of hours. The other server was just deployed less than an hour ago, so I’d be working on that tomorrow more closely. I have 6 days to wrap up all these, the old servers will be taken offline after that.

The site and the games will continue to work. If all goes well, I don’t really expect any downtime. Well, perhaps 5-10 minutes at most when I do the switch from the old servers to the new ones. I still have to figure out the best way to handle this though. I am hoping that before the weekend is over, I’ll have everything settled already, so I can continue working on my new project.
