Chat Downtime

Postby Technical Administrator » Fri Aug 04, 2006 9:09 pm

Within the next two days, I will be moving all the domains and accounts I host from one server to another, then decommissioning the old server. The final domain to be moved is the domain currently serving Nightscrawlers Chat; therefore, Nightscrawlers Chat may be offline for a short interval sometime tomorrow or the next day.

Please be assured that this is planned downtime, and its purpose is to enhance the quality of service we provide; our new server will be better equipped to handle the considerable amount of resources needed for the good performance of Nightscrawler's chat application.

The move should not last long, and I apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

Thank you,

The upgrade is again going to take place how it was originally planned, which is a very stable procedure. So please keep in mind if there are any interruptions in service that upgrades are in progress; they should be completed within a few days, a week at the latest. The move should be transparent.

Thank you,

Migration is in fact complete as of this writing. Nightscrawlers Chat is fully functional on the new server, and root servers have been updated with its new location. However, it may take some time for these changes to trickle down to your ISP and your computer; 24 hours at the most.

Therefore, if you click Chat and see a white page with black text noting that the migration is still in progress, this just means your service provider hasn't processed the change. If you see Chat, you're in!

Thank you for your patience, everyone.

Thank you,

Chat Downtime

Ok, So what happened if you WERE in chat, and then it kicked you, sending you back to the main login page, except EVERY field was on "make your choice" - and wouldn't let you log in?

I put in my SN, typed my password, and changed default room to Nightscrawlers. The page blinked, and stayed at the main login page, except every field is blank (or at make your choice). And the font is is different too.

Good Job Northstar and thank you! As usual your technical expertise is what makes Nightscrawlers one of the coolest (If not the) coolest sites out there.

Also - thanks for keeping our members aware of what's going on with all these timely updates.

If only they were read with the same zeal in which you post them. :D

WOO! It works again! I logged in just fine.

But now the forum pages say there aren't any chatters in the chat room when I know for a fact there's currently three of us in there.

That is because Nightscrawlers hasn't noticed the change yet, and it's checking the old server. It'll update soon; it's all up to the host and its ISP.

Your earlier problem was due to a server upgrade not supported by Chat; Chat had to be rewritten slightly to be compatible with the newer version. It's definitely fixed now.

Thank you,
