  • Prepping for the big server move.

    Starting as early as Monday or Tuesday of next week Oct 1st or 2nd I will begin the process of moving the TOL website from our existing server (where we have been for years and years) to our brand new Cloud server and with a completely new company. The hosting company we have had the last several years is changing their business model and nearly doubled our hosting fees therefore I decided to move to a new company.

    The bad news: This is going to be a tough move logistically. We have accumulated a lot of data and it takes a long time to move all that data from one place to another.

    The good news: The new company pricing was within our budget and their servers run on the very latest operating software which I am really excited about. Also, since we will be hosted in the cloud it will be much easier to upgrade or downgrade should we ever need to.

    The move itself will take about 2 days. And then even after that some folks will not be able to see the new TOL for a day or two depending on how fast your internet service provider updates their name servers.

    Internet Explorer users: If you still use Internet Explorer it's possible that IE will continue to try to force you to see the old site which will be shut down. You might try Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, if this happens to you.

    During the move I will try to make frequent updates on Facebook here... http://www.facebook.com/theologyonline

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

        Let us pray and cross our fingers.
        Psalm 1[/COLOR] and Job 28:28

        Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

        Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

              I've got Firefox. When should the new site be up?

                Alot of it depends on your ISP.

                It will be down for everyone for awhile as I move files over. Then when I turn the site back on and switch the DNS it will take varying amounts of time for folks to be able to see the new site.

                  I have been doing some prep work for the big move tonight. TOL will most likely be offline tomorrow and possible Wednesday.

                    No! Offline for one, possibly two days......

                    Now, if only someone can pay me a nickel for every time I mindless try anyway.

                    It's just a habit at this point.

                      If someone paid you for that, you would be making money in a very weird way.

                      Also, I suggest MineCraft while the server is down. Talk about addicting.

                          This is sorta like suffering through being banned. Been there, done that.
