Downtime Tonight

Hey everyone! I finally got my grubby mitts on our new server and I’m configuring it tonight. At 8pm PST tonight I’m going to take the server down for a few hours and migrate all of the stuff over to the new server.

I’ll make a post here when the server is back online. I will be modifying the hostname “server.avrgaming.com” to point to the new server but because of the way DNS works, it may take a few days to propagate through the internet. In the meantime you’ll be able to connect to the new IP directly instead: 66.171.185.73

Compared to our old server processing power has increased, the RAM speed has increased, but most importantly we are getting an upgrade to a 100MBit dedicated internet line. This was all made possible by your donations so this server belongs to you guys as much as it belongs to us. Enjoy the new digs guys!

Technical Specs for those interested:

Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1230 Sandy Bridge 3.2GHz Quad-Core Server
Memory: 16 GB
1st Hard Drive: 3 TB SATA (7200 RPM)
