Infrastructure Migration and Domain Transfer

Post by iandvl » 08 Mar 2019 10:48

Folks,

I'd like to give a big thanks to John for his assistance in getting the infrastructure migration and domain transfer sorted.

Apart from running on a new server, www.patrol4x4.co.za now has both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, which should make the geeky ones among us happy. :rolling:

That said, there are a few things I need to sort out in the next while.

1: I've got to do some tidying up of the server following the migration. This will not have any affect on activities of the site. But I'll probably do it at night over the weekend.
2: I am going to be deploying the web application over HTTPS for security reasons. Most people will probably not notice when this happens, but keep an eye out for when the little "padlock" icon appears in your browser address bar. Once again, this will probably happen over the weekend.
3: There is a software update I need to do. This is not something which will happen overnight, due to the fact that there is a lot of customisation on the forum and I will need to test this first in order to find an upgrade path.
4: I want to get the forum a little more mobile friendly. This is also not something which is going to happen overnight. I will need to do a lot of testing. I may ask senior members to assist with testing once I've got the basics down.

As always, should there be any problems in the meantime, please feel free to contact me.
