Site Migrated!

That was hard.

Well, it could have been worse. At least this site and everyone’s usernames were transferred correctly.

I won’t bore you with the details, but basically this required two nights of very little sleep to get migrated to the new server. In a couple days, the old one will be turned off, and you shouldn’t  notice, but I’m running them in parallel for the time being in case I really need to fall back.
As you can see, the media here is, let’s say.. lacking. I still have a few folders to transfer over, but as soon as I can (read: today), I’ll get them moved over as well.

Next project is to get this renamed from “cheesewatergames.tk” to “cheesewatergames.net”. That should be exciting…

Edit: Content moved over. The site is pretty again and you should be able to download everything.

I doubt it will truly be that simple in practice, but hey, I’ll try whatever.
Perhaps this weekend I’ll find time to finally migrate everything once and for all. Continue reading “Site News #5: About That Outage – and More!”
