Glitch in getting the Classified section to interact with new server. Had to revert back to old version. Will have to migrate both at the same time. Please stand by for another announcement from Admin.

Given how cheap VPSes are, even those hosted in Singapore, surprised Admin doesn't just bring up an entirely new secondary instance and migrate the data once it is working.

Maybe I should make myself available for consulting :P

We are moving the Classifieds and Forum DB to another server then point the DNS records to the new server.

The long hours are due to converting the Forum DB which is phpbb2 to phpbb3.

If anything breaks then will point the DNS back to the old server. Tested these few days, should work well.
