Migration to New VPS

#1

Post by Rich » Sun Oct 28, 2018 7:43 am

Kurieuo and I are in the process of migrating the site to a new VPS, because of all the problems with old server software. Everything from the past will be saved, but the discussions will have to be turned off at some point in order to not lose posts. We will let you know the timing. Thanks for your patience!

OK, so what does this server change do for us - can it help increase traffic in some way?

No, it doesn’t increase traffic. Just makes the server more reliable and faster.

Which is a huge thing! Rich, I really appreciate you investing in and keeping this site up and running - as its really a one-stop, very comprehensive treasure trove for people around the world seeking specific answers to their many questions about the Bible and Christianity.

Next we need to develop a strategy to increase traffic to both the site and the forum.

Yes, major props to Scott as well - as, for years, he's done lots to help technically keep G&S up and running. :salute:

But he wants no attention and prefers to practice his alchemy behind the scenes!
