Upgrading/migrating server prepare for some downtime
« on: June 21, 2024, 02:08 AM »
We are migrating/upgrading the server so prepare for a bit of downtime.
The server OS and CPANEL install have reached end of service so we need to upgrade the OS, and it's a bit of work.
Crossed fingers it will all go smoothly!

Donationcoder is an old girl.. having started in 2005.. We've been through a lot of changes.. When we moved to a dedicated server in 2007 or so (?) cpanel was a lifesaver, giving us many wonderful options to tweak things.  Now in 2024 it does not feel as wonderful and seems to provide many ways to get into trouble :)

Ah, I started my current website in 2005 (my first was around 1999, but it was really ... nothing of value was lost, to say the least), but I still never liked any of those "panels", causing more work than they'd absorb.
