Server Move
#1
You may have noticed that the site was down for most of yesterday as I attempted to move to another server. The job was far bigger than I anticipated with over 600Mb of data and 3Gb of images.

I ended up cancelling the transfer and reverting back to the original site. I need to investigate how to transfer such a huge amount of data and try again next weekend. Hopefully the site won’t be down for more than a day.

I’ll also be upgrading the site to the latest version of the software.

Hi Admin,
Could you break the sizes down, as I know images do take a while to transfer,
I thought you were having a bit of trouble as the site was down so long, anyway good luck with the next attempt.

Yeh, gonna have to do it in batches so I'll need to do a few tests on a dummy site first.
