Today (May 31) we're migrating to a new hosting server. It shouldn't cause any major issues but in case you get errors I apologize in advance for the inconvenience. No data will be lost.

Hilarious to read the above after 12 hours of downtime. Finally managed to migrate to new server, forum seems to be ok but wiki is missing CSS and format. Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll deal with that tomorrow.

EDIT: who do I want to fool, fixed it already. Now to sleep :D

moving this topic to general forum and unlocking so you can report about any issues with the new server. It *should* be much faster than before to navigate forum and wiki

Good to see everything back in place. So far things seems to be fine with the Wiki. Just edited a typo and it worked neatly (no cache problems). And indeed, it feels much faster!

For me wiki also "flies", much faster than before. Forum was fine when it worked. When it didn't worked, well, it didn't worked at all.

Hope problems are solved for a long time.

As you can do this before by using third party image hosting services, you can do this from now on.

Also, you need to know, storing images on own file system has many problems (and admittedly some advantages). I personally would use my own file system only for essential things, e.g. wiki images. And of course, for database and essential files (software installation).
