Moving Textkit Website To New Server

Postby Jeff Tirey » Mon Jul 29, 2013 2:59 pm

All,

I will be moving the server which hosts Textkit.com During the transition, for about 24-48 hours the forum will be read-only.

The near 15 year journey that Textkit has taken when it comes to web hosting costs is pretty amazing. We started with hosting being so expensive that Miami University had to host our files for us. It wasn't that long ago that the server was $250 a month, then we moved to $50 a month which is where it's at now. - and I'm happy to say I'm moving it to a nearly free service with unlimited bandwidth and disk space. It's GoDaddy so the server will work well.

thanks,
Jeff

The server move is complete! The job took much longer than I expected due to a database table become corrupted and then the repair process taking forever. But all looks to be running smoothly. Should anyone spot a problem, please feel free to contact me.

thanks,
