Moving the website to Sheffield
By Ed Mitchell 1st November 2010
We will be moving the Transition Network website from The US to Sheffield, UK on Tuesday 2nd November at 13:00. There may be a few bumps along the way, so please bear with us.
This follows a period of consultation with the development team, editors and management which produced a set of criteria upon which to make our web hosting decision. Following that, we are moving to ‘Web Architects’ in Sheffield.
For those with an interest in these things, here’s roughly how it will go…
- DNS TTL set to 1 minute – done
- Backup the db
- Put the site in maintance mode
- Switch the DNS to point to Sheffield
- Insert the db and files on the new server
- Flush the cache
