09/04/2012 Replacing hard-disk on server

Post by luchtzak » 08 Apr 2012, 09:07

Tomorrow a new hard-disk has to be installed on the server, the website will be taken down. A back-up will be taken first so I recommend whenever you post a message on the forums to make a copy and place it on your laptop (notepad, notebook, wordpad,...)

Again I am sorry for the inconvenience!

fingers crossed !
Tip: take 2 back ups on 2 different storage devices. And before you launch the new HD, first check if your back ups have succeeded. ( don't ask me where I get this almost too precautious behaviour from :evil: )

Thanks for the advice !

Update: backups and change of hard disk are now planned for this night. Hoping to be back online tomorrow morning.
