Well, I'm a CEO during daytime, which is mostly fun and refreshing, and head of development / coder during evening/nighttime, which is refreshing in a different way. Work mostly doesn't feel like work, I guess that's the trick. Also, of course I take some days off from time to time (demopartys, mixed business/leisure travel), so in total it's just ~350 working hours per month. I'm happy :)

@scamp: I got a little problem, I can't test fully my website because I check the domain name (*.chiptune.com) and NOT chiptune.untergrund.net so the website start in "offline" mode so I can't test database/sql/etc...

there's a way to update something (index.html) to the new ftp?

apart of that the site works fine, both code+gfx :)

Add chiptune.com to your hosts-config the same way Scamp described and you should be fine
added on the 2011-08-29 11:47:58 by Punqtured Punqtured
Right, www.chiptune.com works fine for me after having it added to the hosts file.

yes it works but I found a first bug :D

something about file encoding... the char "°" was replaced by an utf8-like "�" (an "y" with &yagrave; accent).

files are converted? or the server handle file encoding differently than before?
added on the 2011-08-29 17:09:06 by rez rez
It might be that the old apache by default served Latin-1, and the new installation defaults to UTF-8. No files have been converted or touched. Will check.
added on the 2011-09-01 01:20:37 by scamp scamp
Yes, that indeed was the case, the Apache was always adding a UTF-8 charset header.

Should be fixed now, please retry.

Hi there,

we are now moving to the final stage of the untergrund.net
move to a new server. The switchover to the new server
will happen tomorrow.

To remind you of the changes:

This move will mean a good-bye to PHP 4.3.10 and a hello
to PHP 5.3.2, allowing you to use todays web frameworks/
blog engines etc.

For the last 3 weeks, you had time to beta-test your
site compatibility on the new server.

IMPORTANT: If you have done fixes in your scripts on the
new server during the beta test, then *DO MAKE LOCAL COPIES
OF THESE FILES NOW* - or, if they are compatible with the old
php on unet3, you may update the files on unet3
instead. Tomorrow, during the switch-over, ALL files and
ALL mysql data will be re-synched from unet3->unet4
again, meaning that all changes on unet4 compared
to unet3 WILL be lost.

What will happen tomorrow (Sunday):

- Sometime around noon, the old server will be
locked to being read-only. FTP logins no longer
will be possible, the mysql server will be stopped.
All sites relying on mysql will stop working for
a few hours.

Then there will be a final synchronization of
all user files and databases to the new server.

In other words: ALL CHANGES that you have done
on the new server while in beta phase WILL BE LOST!

If you have used the beta phase to fix your scripts to
make them compatibile with the new setup you
should either make them compatible with both the
old and the new server and update them on the OLD
server (so they get synched over to the new one
during the final sync), OR you should keep local
backups of these changes and re-upload them to
the new server after the switchover tomorrow.

If you haven't done so after my last messages, please
also make sure of the following:

- If you have an external domain pointing to your
untergrund.net account, make sure that the
involved DNS records have a LOW TTL (like 3
hours or so). This will allow you to tomorrow
switch to the new IP quickly, so
you don't have the
old IP in DNS caches across the world for days.

Move in progress, sites will be unreachable for about an hour or so.
added on the 2011-09-18 19:05:03 by scamp scamp
I have just completed the move. untergrund.net is now fully
migrated to the new server. As soon as your DNS cache
is updated, www.untergrund.net and your own hostname
should now resolve to the new IP If you
have any external domain pointing to the old IP,
you should change that NOW.

So far everything seems to work well, and even the
website statistics work (hooray).

In case you have any trouble or questions:

Now go test your site.

.htaccess seems not to work.

retry now.

index.shtml does not work, although .shtml in general works.

Scamp: Works fine for demoscene.no, but date.timezone must be set in php.ini to get PHPBB to stop outputting a couple of annoying warnings (under PHP 5.3). Is that something I can configure myself, or would you have to do it for me? :)
added on the 2011-09-18 23:40:54 by kusma kusma
kusma: Done, please check if the warnings are gone.

shiru: index.shtml should now work.

I have other problem, my Pivot-based blog (PHP only, no SQL) stopped to work, it shows 500 internal error. I don't know if it is because of server configuration or I need to change something myself, haven't figured out yet - just inform you in case it may reveal some problems with server config. I'll try to reinstall/reconfigure it later.

Also, unrelated to the move, just a question. Some time ago I've accidentaly set 204 rights to a directory (/pubhtml/temp) and now I can't do anything with it - neither delete nor change the rights. What is possible to do in this case? I just need to delete it.
added on the 2011-09-19 00:02:03 by Shiru Shiru
I think error 500 could be due to some now broken .htaccess directives, you could check if it still happens without a .htaccess and the remove commands from .htaccess one by one until you found the culprit. :)
scamp: Yes, they are. Thanks a lot!

shiru: The error.log in your home dir is full of info. Use it :)

It's (among others) complaining that you made that "1bit" directory group- and world-writeable. Bad idea. php at untergrund.net runs under your user account (suphp), you only need files to be writeable by your own user.
