Just a reminder that ASF will be going offline tonight, probably around 9:30pm Sydney time as I transfer all files and databases to our new host. I will then throw the switch and hopefully shortly thereafter we will be live again on our new server. Of course, the reality is that it will be probably be a complete disaster complete with screaming and hair pulling, but I remain optimistic.

I imagine there will be quite a few issues to tidy up after the server migration is complete so please notify me in this thread about any problems you are experiencing.

Might want to stay off the red, yet keep it handy....just in case:D

I think we're finally back. If anyone notices any teething issues with the new server please let me know in this thread.

Thanks! :)

I'm aware that there are issues with the forum search function and that search results are not currently being returned. I am working on this and hopefully everything should be back to normal by tomorrow.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

CZZ 04-11-16.png

Other than Searching (I tried CZZ and AKP with negative results) everything else seems to work.

Re Searching: It seems that only 3 letters return a negative result. When I searched for "capilano", the correct CZZ thread came up.


Thanks Joe.

Yes, still having trouble with searches for three letter words unfortunately. In the meantime please search for company names rather than ASX codes.

I will update once this issue has been rectified.

Good work done though I missed ASF during weekend. Nonetheless, single handedly you did well.
On minor side CZZ search is still an issue as Pixel brought your attention.
Folks
I am not an IT wizard but surely some of you are. Why not extend help to Joe. I always recognise his and the posters' quality work here when I get frustrated to read the craps of some of the paid newsletter sites.

New features coming Joe?

The move on the weekend was just changing from one web host to another.

The migration to the new software platform will be happening in the first half of next month. This will involve the introduction of many new features and will be the biggest change in ASF's history, so stay tuned for more updates on this as the date of the migration draws nearer. Still hard at work on this at the moment.

Just another quick update on the search function. I have had to empty the entire search index and rebuild it from scratch so that three letter words are included in searches. This was due to a missed server setting when moving ASF across to the new server.

At the moment the search index is a little less than a quarter rebuilt and the process will finish sometime late tonight. If you search for "BHP" for example you will see threads from the deep, dark past starting to show up in the search results, but there is still a long way to go. Today might be painful for site searches, so I recommend those searching ASF today do so from Google instead. Simply go to Google and type in the following, site:aussiestockforums.com "Your search string here". This will search ASF from Google and you should hopefully find what you are looking for.

My apologies for the inconvenience. This will be all over later tonight. :eek:

I am sure all posters of ASF will join me to thank you for sleep less nights for us.
All the best mate and nothing to apologise and your communication to update us of great help.
Have a good sleep and 'she will be right mate in the morning'
