Attention, site transfer 19 March - Monday - Wensday
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:58:06 AM »
ODC will be read-only from 19 March to 21 March. It will still be up, but anything posted during that time most likely will not be kept.
Please plan accordingly.

     It is unclear what ourdoll1 means by "site transfer". If the site is moving to another server on the same web host, there should not be a problem. If the site is moving to another web host, it could take 24 hours for the Domain Name Servers (DNS) to find Our Doll Community. To most members and guests, it will appear that ODC is offline. If ODC chat is down, meet at Arimecibo Island Chat. Look here for more information.

Basically what is happening is certain main parts that make up ODC are being moved to other server drives so
that they are no longer are all on one server drive. This has been causing us to have problems such as the "505"
errors some of you may have experienced in chat. We are also suffering from what is called a extremely high
Inode count due to ODC growing and more & more pics being loaded into the Gallery. Our server service will no
longer do automatic backups of ODC until we get the inode count back down. Each time a pic is loaded into the
Gallery, we lose 3 inodes. I forgot how much we were allotted when we started with the new server service, but
we are way over that amount currently.

If all goes well and we do get the Inode count back down and the automatic backups start happening again, Ourdoll-1
(Creator & Person In Charge of ODC...) is looking at updating the software for the major parts of the forum. But this
cannot be done until we can get backups going again.

This is only a "Nutshell" explanation. Hopefully Ourdoll-1 can chime in with more details.


Take care everyone. litlluvr.

The switch is to solve all the inode problems for good, and boost up the speed of ODC. The reason it is going to take 3 days - is so ODC WILL be on line that time for reference. The old site will be staying up until the new one has been transferred and verified everything is good.

And Everyone, please use Noque's Arimecibo Island Chat. During those three days.

Will the picture attachments option be turned back on after this then?
