Moving Hosts

I’m in the middle of moving hosts at the moment, so things will not appear quiet right at the moment. Everything will be back to normal soon… I promise!

Moving hosts is always a pain in the ass:

  1. You have to make sure databases have moved over properly – along with the fact that trying to move semi-large databases without shell access is a nightmare!
  2. You end up having to double triple check that you’ve uploaded all neccessary files.
  3. You inevitably end up forgetting something – which leads to you doubting yourself – which leads to you checking everything for a fourth or fifth time.
  4. The wait for domain name propagation is tiresome – I’m making this post on the new server.

I’ve probably forgotten to mention something else annoying about moving hosts, but I blame the moving itself for that ;)

Update:

See, I did forget to mention something. I reverted to the default wordpress style in order to be able to clearly tell when the domain name propagation occurred. I plan on putting the old a new design up soon.

Another Update:

The move has been completed. I forgot to mention that in the last update. Forgetful me ;-)
